Jackie Robinson will be on the front of the MLB The Show 21 Collector’s Editions.

The extraordinary Jackie Robinson Edition of the game will feature a black-and-white photograph of Robinson on the field for the Brooklyn Dodgers, with just the Dodgers blue of his uniform colorized.

MLB The Show isn’t simply respecting Robinson’s legacy by putting him on the front of the game. PlayStation will likewise give $1 to the Jackie Robinson Foundation for each MLB The Show 21 Collector’s Edition sold in the U.S. through the year’s end.

You can preorder the Jackie Robinson Edition of MLB The Show 21 presently, just as the normal release of the game, which has Padres phenom Fernando Tatis Jr. on the cover.

Preorders of the Jackie Robinson Edition incorporate four days of early admittance to the game beginning on April 16 – the day after MLB’s yearly festival of Jackie Robinson Day.

With the donations from the MLB The Show 21 Collector’s Editions, the Jackie Robinson Foundation – which was made by Robinson’s better half Rachel in 1973 – will set up the JRF MLB The Show Scholars program in partnership with PlayStation.

Researchers in the JRF MLB The Show Scholars program will get four-year grants and support services like vocation direction and temporary position situation. More data on the Jackie Robinson Foundation programs is accessible here, and more data on applying to be a JRF MLB The Show Scholar will be reported in November.

MLB The Show’s declaration of the Jackie Robinson Edition of the game on Wednesday comes three days after Robinson’s birthday – he would have been 102 on Jan. 31 – and as the U.S. celebrates Black History Month.
