Alabama Man Pitches Perfect Game In MLB 2K10, Wins $1 Million
2K Sports was giving away the large sum of money as part of their Perfect Game Contest. The first gamer to pitch a perfect game, under the guidelines provided, would win the reward. It may sound somewhat difficult, but that was not the case for 24-year-old Wade McGilberry, who used Braves pitcher Kenshin Kawakami to achieve the remarkable feat within the first 24 hours of the competition.
I’m not sure what is more impressive. The fact that he pitched a perfect game, or that he decided to use Kawakami to do so (in real life he is currently 0-5 with a 5.47 ERA this season). Kawakami may suck in real life, but it seems as though his video game character is already a Cy Young candidate.
