2K Sports has announced today that it's $1,000,000 competition in which the first person to pitch a verified perfect game in Major League Baseball 2K11 will be awarded a cool one meeeellion dollars, will be making a welcome return. This will be the second year that 2K Sports has ran the contest, which will commence at the same time as the Major League Baseball's Opening Day on April 1, 2011.
That gives you just under a month to sharpen your baseball skills to compete for the big prize by achieving a feat that only 20 pitchers in baseball history have accomplished. Major League Baseball 2K11 has refined pitching mechanics and an expanded entry pool that allows anyone over the age of 13 to participate, making the competition for this year's 'Perfect Game Challenge' even more fierce.
"2K Sports made video game history last year by giving away $1 million in the Perfect Game Challenge," said Jason Argent, VP of marketing at 2K Sports. "We're thrilled to be giving our fans - from skilled players to novices - another shot at the prize money with Major League Baseball 2K11. Our cover athlete, Roy Halladay of the Philadelphia Phillies, is one of those rare pitchers to have thrown a perfect game and we think that it's only fitting that he'll be inspiring gamers to step onto the mound for their chance at perfection."
