MLB The Show 20 features haven't been fully announced yet, but that's not stopping fans from stocking their wish lists for in the next installment.

MLB The Show 19 received great reviews from its critics, but nothing is ever perfect and can be adjusted. With MLB The Show 20 set to release March 17, players are excited to get back on the mound and in the batter’s box again.

Here are three features fans are hoping for in this next installment of MLB the Show.

MLB The Show 20 Features: 3 Things Fans Want

Less Forgiving Hitting Windows

As good as the last entry was, one problem players faced was how easy it was to make contact with the ball. Players having the ability to make decent contact on the ball after being “too late” or “too early” makes it hard for competitive and online gameplay. A tighter hitting window would solve that problem.

Realism and Rewarding Play

MLB The Show 19 showed a badly timed hit could result in a double or single. Although, there were times where a perfectly timed hit would end up as a fly out. As a player that could make you want to pull your hair out because it isn’t realistic.

There is no reason why we are not rewarded for predicting a pitch correctly but concede a double for throwing the correct pitch.

More Reasons to Grind

Sports simulators including Madden, FIFA and NBA 2K all succeed on one feature: giving players something to grind. SIE San Diego should focus on adding even more content to the game's catalog to keep players grinding MLB The Show 20 for the months to follow release.
