McCutchen posted a message on Twitter that read: “I am humbled and thrilled that you, the fans, have voted me as the cover athlete for MLB 13: The show. It really is a dream come true for me to be on the cover of a video game. But, even more, I wanted this for Pittsburgh, a city that has supported me through some rough times. You deserve this. … This vote showed me the sense of pride that the people of Pittsburgh have, along with all the other fans who supported me.”
