I hope the crowd doesn't do those "zombie" style cheers this year. You all know the ones I mean.
Especially ones that have NEVER HAPPENED in real life.

"Mi-am-i! Mi-am-i!" Awful.

If it makes you feel better, they always always say whatever you see in development pictures, videos, streams are not final [especially ratings] and are subject to change. So they could very easily add in the ballpark changes in April or May.

Also is it me or does JT's face not look that accurate in the photo? Brinson looks good.
Yes but the game comes out in March lol so no to April or May.

Yes to April or May. I believe it was @rmc523 earlier mentioned they made changes to Coors Field in a May patch. The change will happen, don't worry, silly.

Wasn't me.  I haven't played the game before.

Last week they released Jimmie Foxx and Pudge Rodriguez were new legends to the game.

Monday they very quietly announced Cliff Lee as a flashback through the Gamestop Monday video.

Tonight they added in Andruw Jones and Walter Johnson. They're getting a lot of awesome legends. Johnson, Ty Cobb, Christy Mathewson, Willie Mays among others.

Are the legends just like a special mode where you replay big moments in their career or can you use them in a franchise mode?  Can I have pudge on the marlins?

They are useable just like normal current players. They're not on the default current rosters but they can be added in. There's no special mode. Come to think of it, they're just extra players that u can use anyway you want in any mode, they just happen to have better abilites. Provides some nice variety and I like how they've made sure to have each team represented with the legends because if you're a team like the Marlins or Rays it would be easy to be left off when they include greater all time legends but they've got guys like Cliff Floyd in there for us... which sounds silly to say but it's true

Yeah, pretty much this. You can use the legends in Franchise Mode if you turn on Legend Free Agents. Of course they're going to come at a premium price.

Ya'll hear about the new March to October mode? I'm very intrigued, it's not for everyone but I think it'll really appeal to people like me (and some on here) who just don't have the time to invest into a full franchise.

Basically it's season mode in fast forward, you play only the key games and moments of a full season. The games in between are simulated but the success of your team in the simulated games is based off how you do in the games you play. So say you play Opening Day and you win, maybe your next game isn't for three weeks but your team will do better in those three weeks. Then you jump from game to game like this and are only thrown into important games. 

The line that stood out to me was "play a full season in just a few sittings." I love the idea of franchise mode but it sure is tedious so this seems tailor made for people like me.

It looks perfect to me.

This is the kind of mode I needed. 162 game season is too much for me.

Also, you don't always even play full games. Some games maybe you start in the late innings and need to make a big comeback that can change your season. Some games you only control one player trying to reach a specific goal, etc etc. Sounds fast paced fun and fresh.
