Evan Longoria Gets MLB 2K10 Cover

Posted November 15th, 2009 at 5:44 pm


Evan Longoria has been revealed to be the cover athlete for 2K Sports MLB 2K10. As first reported at Kotaku four potential covers were included to be chosen from in a marketing survey with all being different variations of a Longoria cover. 2K has not made any official announcement and may not still for some time. For MLB 2K9 the announcement came on November 11th which was earlier than usual to coincide with and take advantage of the news that Tim Lincecum had won the Cy Young.

Longoria was one of the top possibilities last year coming off a Rookie of the Year award winning season in which his Tampa Bay Rays went to the World Series. The two baseball games chose Tim Lincecum and Dustin Pedroia instead. Longoria had a great 2009 season statistically batting .281 with 33 HRs and 113 RBIs and won his first Gold Glove. This is the first time that 2K has gone outside of an area that houses a headquarters for the company having stuck with players from New York and the Bay Area in the past.
