The latest episode of the Press Row Podcast revealed the Sports Game of the Year winner for 2016 as MLB The Show 16. A panel of nine judges contributed to the voting and The Show appeared on eight of the ballots. This represents the second win for the franchise in the five years of the award being handed out. Madden NFL 17 emerged as a contender for the crown finishing higher than it ever has before while a slip-up by NBA 2K17 prevented the series from being able to capture back-to-back victories.
