2K Sports was at it again this year awarding someone $1 million dollars for pitching a perfect game in their latest iteration MLB 2K11. It was open to PS3 and Xbox 360 users.
Last year’s winner of the perfect game challenge was Wade McGillbury who pitched a perfect game with Atlanta Braves pitcher Kenshin Kawakami.
The rules have changed slightly since then. It is now open to people thirteen years of age and up. The contest didn’t officially get under way until opening day 2011.
Brian Kingrey was announced as this years winner of the perfect game challenge. Unlike last year, it came as no surprise that he would use the cover athlete Roy Halladay to pitch his perfect game against a weak Houston Astros club.

I find it interesting that he won the challenge and he isn’t even much of a Baseball fan. It really goes to show his commitment to gaming as a whole. Practicing five hours a day leading up to the start of the contest is proof of that.
Congratulations to you Brian, now go out and purchase that fridge that you and your wife so badly need.
