Spring Training is in full swing, and now you can get into the action early with a demo of MLB 2K9. The demo is available today on Xbox Live Marketplace and will be on PlayStation Network on Thursday. The demo is for up to two layers locally and has three full innings of play at Philadelphia’s Citizens Bank Park where you can play as either the Tampa Bay Devil Rays or the Philadelphia Phillies. If you haven't already listened, Gaming Nexus took part in a Q&A with Erick Boenisch (Lead Features Designer) and Jonathan Rivera (Gameplay Producer) for MLB 2K9 late last week. It has some great info on the game and what you can expect.
