It’s officially opening day for Major League Baseball, another season for players to get a chance to prove their worth and get their team to the World Series. But gamers can also get their chance to bask in the spotlight, even if they don’t know the first thing about swinging a bat.
2K Sports has announced the kicking-off of the Major League Baseball 2K13 Perfect Game Challenge, where players can compete for a number of cash prizes. Though one won’t win the big $1 million prize like in previous years, there’s still plenty up for grabs. Details below…
“Contestants can compete to win up to 30 $25,000 prize pools ($750,000 total), one per MLB team. Not only that, the four contestants with the top-rated perfect games thrown with any team will move on to the Perfect Game Challenge Tournament during MLB All-Star Week in New York for the $250,000 grand prize. For the second year in a row, 2K Sports’ proprietary algorithm will rank individual perfect games based on difficulty (such as the opposing team’s offensive prowess and selected pitcher’s skill) and degree of perfection (such as number of strikeouts and pitching efficiency).”
Good luck to you and we’ll see you on the mound!
Major League Baseball 2K13 is available now for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
