MLB's game RBI didn't sell and no one else was interested in acquiring the MLB license so i doubt MLB was in a position to demand anything.

MLB probably asked nicely if they can put their game on other platforms, maybe offering something in return. And Sony saw an opportunity to make extra money by making multiplatform a game than isn't exactly a console seller and it's practically non existent outside of the US.

Sony will be making extra cash because of this but having one of their 1st party studios now developing for multi platform and losing an exclusive doesn’t seem like a choice that they would have made themselves.

Definitely. That's why i said that it was probably MLB's idea and they must have offered something in return to make Sony even consider this.

It wasn't Sony's idea but i'm sure they weren't forced either.
