First screens for Major League Baseball 2K9 look like, well, baseball

Yup, that’s baseball, all right.

This afternoon, 2K Sports sent us a whole two — count ’em, two — screenshots of their upcoming baseball title, Major League Baseball 2K9. Both images feature coverboy Tim Lincecum in the middle of his freaky windup, getting ready to unleash a fireball on a hitter who’s likely cowering in the batter’s box at San Francisco’s AT&T Park. Check them out in the gallery.

MLB 2K9 is set for release in the first week of March, and it will be the only baseball videogame available on non-Sony platforms (it’ll be out for the PS3, 360, Wii, PS2, and PSP). If you want more information, you can check out its features list, or its official Web site. And for a mildly amusing video starring Lincecum, head here.
