2K Sports announced today that St. Louis Cardinals 1st Baseman, Albert Pujols, will be bringing his MVP award, his Gold Glove, and his World Series ring to the yard this summer as the cover athlete of 2K’s multi-platform arcade baseball game, The Bigs.
"The Bigs celebrates the heroes of Major League Baseball and the epic moments of professional baseball," said Erik Whiteford, Vice President of Marketing at 2K Sports. "Throughout his career, Albert Pujols has delivered unforgettable plays at the most amazing times.”
Citing the Redbirds slugger’s “larger-than-life abilities” (fastest player ever to reach 250 home runs) and “flair for the dramatic” (ask the likes of Kerry Wood and Brad Lidge), Whiteford called Pujols “the perfect cover athlete.”
New York Yankees Shortstop, Derek Jeter, currently graces the cover of 2K Sports’ other, traditional baseball game, MLB 2K7.
