Alex Bregman Graces the Cover of R.B.I. Baseball 19!

Houston Astros third baseman Alex Bregman gave fans a first look at the cover of R.B.I. Baseball 19 at Astros FanFest today.

As the 2nd overall pick in the 2015 MLB draft, Bregman made his MLB debut in July 2016 when he was 22 years old. Since then he was named Minor League Player of the Year by USA Today in 2016, played in the 2017 World Baseball Classic – winning the gold medal as the youngest member of team USA, has a World Series ring (2017), and was named MVP of the 2018 MLB All-Star Game in Washington D.C. He also led all of baseball in doubles in 2018.

Alex Bregman has been generating some buzz on and off the field, starting with the rise in popularity of the ‘dugout stare’.  This past season, Bregman challenged fans on social media to show him their best dugout stares – and they have not disappointed! Alex also created his own YouTube channel in October 2018 that already has over 63,000 subscribers!

With Opening Day quickly approaching, Bregman prepares to give fans more excitement at 3rd for the Astros. Check him out behind the scenes of the cover shoot for R.B.I. Baseball 19!
