Just found this article online. Looks like Justin Verlander will be the cover athlete.

As a Tigers fan I was beside myself with this news. Just saw what the cover is going to look like, because he posted it on his Twitter and now I'm even more excited. I'll be buying this game for sure even if it ends up being garbage.

I wish the Cubs could bring someone through the farm like Verlander

Jeez why isn't Jose Bautista the cover athlete, he has hit the most homeruns over the last 2 seasons, and is a great leader on and off the field, but congrats to justin wish he was on my blue jays....

Once again like said last year they want to promote the million dollar challenge. Verlander threw a no hitter last year and had a phenomenal year so they put him on the cover. Roy Halladay did the same thing a year before and that's why he got the 2k11 cover.

What I think would be cool with the cover is if they could make it two athletes. One hitter, let's say Bautista and one pitcher, let's say Verlander.

Now make it so they are in some sort of pitcher/hitter showdown.

I am a Yankee fan that lives in Detroit. I do root for the Tigers when they aren't playing the Yanks though. Verlander is a great player and does great things for the community around here as well. Couldn't have picked a better guy for this years cover! Might actually buy instead of rent this years installment now. :woop:
