One of the most incredible features for sports fans in MLB The Show 2023 is the inclusion of legends and being able to play with them in all their glory. With the latest addition of legends to the long-running sports video game series, it seems that a very influential name may be missing—Barry Bonds. Is Barry Bonds in MLB The Show 23? We have the answer for you.

Does MLB The Show 23 Have Barry Bonds?

At the time of writing, Barry Bonds is not included in MLB The Show 23. This is very unfortunate as he is one of the greatest baseball players ever to get their hands on a bat—and being able to play as him would be a huge blessing. While there is no information on why developer San Diego Studio left him out, we still hope that he will be added later through an update or patch.

All Legends Currently in MLB The Show 23

While Barry Bonds isn’t in the game currently, there are still plenty of legendary names that players can add to their roster. Below are all the legends presently available in the game at the time of writing.
