MLB The Show 23 Cover Athlete & Trailer
The MLB The Show 23 Cover Athlete is Jazz Chisholm Jr. of the Miami Marlins.
Jazz Chisholm Jr.’s electric personality, play and love for all things baseball made him a great choice to be on the cover of MLB The Show 23. Jazz grew up in Nassau, Bahamas, playing sandlot baseball with friends. As Jazz puts it “no umpires, no catchers, just hitting bombs and having fun we just played to play.” He never thought a kid like him from the Bahamas would make it to The Show, let alone end up on the cover of MLB The Show!
In an injury-shortened 2022, Chisholm hit .254/.325/.535 with 14 homers, 12 stolen bases and 10 doubles in 60 games with 2.5 bWAR.
