Alabama Man Wins $1 Million For Pitching Perfect Game In MLB 2K10

Remember that contest that 2K announced back in January that said the first person to pitch a perfect game in Major League Baseball 2K10 would win a $1,000,000? Well, guess what? I won! Actually, that’s a lie, but someone did manage to pull it off.

24-year old Wade McGilberry of Semmes, Alabama pitched the perfect game on the very first day of the contest – March 2 – but he had to wait until the contest ended on May 2 before 2K and video game records authority Twin Galaxies could verify it.

"It was actually my wife who convinced me to go for it. I never thought I'd actually win a million dollars playing a video game, it's all still sinking in for me,” McGilberry explained in a statement. "The game itself was fantastic - I'm glad I bought it either way - but I have to say, this is a nice return on my investment.”

2K is probably a little bummed at having to part with a cool $1 million, but as 2K Sports vice president of marketing Jason Argent explains, the reaction it solicited was well worth it.

“This competition was an amazing ride for us. We honestly had no idea what to expect. But the incredible response from the fans and the buzz surrounding the competition was nothing that we could have ever predicted.”

Really? You couldn’t predicted that people would flock like mad birds to a contest giving them the chance to win $1 million for playing a video game? That’s one of the most buzz-worthy scenarios I have ever heard. But that’s beside the point. Congratulations, Mr. McGilberry!

Any readers attempt the perfect game challenge?
