MLB parks to use crowd noise from MLB The Show during games #Gaming
Video games have always tried to meticulously replicate the experience of a given sport. Now, with social distancing, it seems Major League Baseball is taking a step back in realism. To help with the experience stadiums are pumping in sound effects from the video game MLB the show…and adding cardboard cutouts. And life imitates art imitates life imitates…
Taking a cue from two European soccer leagues, Major League Baseball will play crowd noise from its official video game through ballpark sound systems during games. Stadium sound engineers will have access to around 75 different effects and reactions, according to MLB, which has provided teams with crowd sounds captured from MLB The Show.
Baseball is hoping the crowd noises, along with stadium announcers, walk-up music and in-stadium video, will replicate the in-game experience as closely as possible without real fans in the stadium. Some ballparks are also offering fans the chance to buy photo cutouts that will be placed in the stands.
