'MLB The Show 17' Soundtrack Rumors: 38 Songs with a heavy dose of '90s hip hop


MLB The Show 17 is set to launch on March 28, but we've yet to learn what songs will be included on the game's soundtrack this year. However, there's a rumored track list that includes 38 songs and it's heavy on 1990s hip-hop — which matches the retro elements we've already learned about with this release.

The legendary Ken Griffey Jr. has been chosen as the cover athlete and there's even a new Retro Mode included that pays homage to the old-school, more simplified baseball video games.

You can see the rumored soundtrack on Spotify. It was published by PlayStation Music with the title Jr's Throwback Jams. Based on the cover athlete and other nostalgic qualities, a track list like this seems feasible.
