"Hello all, my name is Patrick Hager, I'm the lead graphics programmer and I'm here to fill in some more info on lighting in MLB 09 The Show.
Lighting was a major focus for us this year, and we implemented a Global Lighting model. What does that mean? It means that objects are lit by their surroundings. It means that when players are in shadow, they can still get light from the sunlight hitting the dirt just beyond the shadow's edge, or a bright wall behind them. It means that in stadiums, red floors cast red light on neighboring objects. It is another step towards that realism we all want in our baseball game."
