R.B.I. Baseball 17, developed by MLBAM with Los Angeles Dodgers shortstop Corey Seager featured on its U.S. and global covers - is available for smartphones, tablets and next generation consoles beginning today.
Fans can buy R.B.I. Baseball, which has long featured fast paced and fun gameplay, via the top retailers in North America and Canada (featuring Toronto Blue Jays outfielder Kevin Pillar on the cover), including GameStop, Best Buy, Walmart, Target, and MLB.com, among other participating outlets. Globally, it is accessible as a digital download on the Xbox Marketplace, PlayStation Store and the App Store on iPhone and iPad.
To commemorate this year's game and Opening Day, fans beginning today will have the opportunity to enter a Twitter sweepstakes for the chance to win custom R.B.I. Baseball 17 team-branded Xbox One S consoles. Fans should follow @RBIGame, @MLB or their favorite team accounts for complete details on the sweepstakes, which runs through April 4 at 11:59 p.m. EDT.
Including today's roster update, MLBAM will add new features in subsequent updates coming later this spring. Among those will be the official MLB Opening Day rosters and an improved Multiplayer mode for consoles.
