The lights are on
This year’s installment of Sony’s annual baseball franchise MLB: The Show will be shipping with a long-awaited feature: online franchise mode. The mode will be available for both PlayStation 3 and 4 owners.
The new online mode fuses the team-building aspects of franchise mode, such as scouting and off season contracts, and combines them with the customizable schedules and divisional alignments of online leagues. Franchise can be shared with friends online, and most of the features from last year’s offline version will be making the transition, including scouting, amateur draft, free agency, and CPU trades. When you create an online franchise, you will automatically become the league's commissioner, allowing you to customize the division's alignment, schedule, and more.
You can check out more on MLB 14 The Show here. The game will be available for PS3 and Vita on April 1, with the PS4 version landing sometime in May.

Wow, sounds great! I've never been too big in to the online modes for The Show, but this seems pretty awesome for the people who love online franchises.
I've played a lot of MLB The Show games, and they were okay, but they never seemed real. From what I have seen with MLB 14 The Show, this game looks more real then previous games. I loved the scene when a player gets thrown out of a game, and when all the players celebrate after an amazing victory.
