Aaron Judge selected for the cover of MLB: The Show 18.

Aaron Judge has been selected as the cover athlete for next spring's "MLB The Show 18," marking the first time that a player from the Yankees will have appeared on the cover of the prestigious video game franchise.

Judge hit 52 home runs this past season, breaking the previous rookie record held by Mark McGuire (49). He helped an overachieving Yankees team push the eventual World Series champion Astros to a seventh game in the American League Championship Series.

While he had 27 strikeouts in the postseason, he did hit three home runs in the ALCS and one in the Wild Card game.

Outside of last year's selection celebrating Ken Griffey Jr., the cover representative for the "MLB The Show" series has been fairly easy to predict.

Publisher SCEA has generally chosen young sluggers from playoff teams, but not from the two squads that reached the World Series.

Judge fits that model precisely, though doing so about a year or two earlier as a rookie than others from the past.

The meteoric rise of Judge could be tracked through his attributes in "MLB The Show 17," where he began his rookie season rated 68 Overall and ended as an 88 Overall.

His power ratings went from the 60s to the 90s by the end of the year.

"MLB The Show 18" will release on March 27, 2018 for PlayStation 4.
