Sony (unknowingly) picked the most ideal time imaginable to release MLB The Show 20 for the Playstation 4. People are staying home amid the coronavirus outbreak, and there are no sports to watch with league cancellations and suspensions everywhere. Major League Baseball, for example, announced that they won’t start for at least two weeks into the regular season, and most people around baseball think the season won’t start until May at the earliest.

So, fans can get their sports/baseball fix by playing MLB The Show 20, which had an early access launch on Friday (the official release date for the game is Tuesday, March 17). And many folks have already taken advantage of the opportunity to throw at Houston Astros batters, following the well-documented sign-stealing scandal that led to Houston being heckled, booed, and mocked throughout spring training.

Here are some examples of people hitting Houston batters with pitches:

The pitcher will be ejected after hitting three batters in MLB The Show 20, as many gamers facing the Astros will likely find out quickly.
