Corey Seager unveiled as the cover athlete for R.B.I. Baseball 17

Corey Seager enjoyed a fantastic rookie season in 2016 that saw him hit .308/.365/.512 with 26 homers and walk away with the Rookie of the Year honors. The 22-year-old also brought home a Silver Slugger award and finished third in MVP voting.

What does a breakout first season get you in the big leagues? How about the cover of a video game. R.B.I. Baseball unveiled it's new cover during Dodgers FanFest on Saturday in front of 28,967 at Dodger Stadium.

"That was really cool for me," Seager said. "Growing up playing sports video games and seeing all the people on the covers and idolizing them, it's surreal still. I still smile every time I see it."

Below is a behind-the-scenes look at the cover shoot.


R.B.I. Baseball 17 will be available in the spring for iPhone, iPad, supported Android smartphones and tablets, PlayStation4 and Xbox One. For more information, check out
