Jose Bautista at SCE San Diego Studio

Toronto Blue Jays slugger Jose Bautista is a big fan of video games. And being a star athlete gets him some rather unique perks. He gets to be IN video games. In fact, Bautista admits he is not only honored to be included in MLB the Show, but also don the game's Canadian cover for the second consecutive year. "I think it's a great compliment to be on the cover," he said. "I'm really proud and excited to be on the cover again this year."

On Saturday he posted this picture of himself in a special suit for an MLB The Show production at their studios in San Diego while the Blue Jays were in town to face the Padres. The suit is designed to mirror the player's movement and make the video game even more realistic. As Jose Bautista wrote along with the photo, "This is why MLB The Show is the realest baseball video game out there!"
