Whoever expected someone to pitch a perfect game. Not 2k Games. 2K Games launched a contest in conjunction with the release of Major League Baseball 2K10: the first person to pitch a perfect game would win a million dollars. Little did they expect that someone would hit the jackpot.
Wade McGilberry of Mobile, Alabama is the lucky million dollar winner for pitching a perfect game in Xbox’s Major League Baseball 2010. After five failed attempts, Mr. McGilberry was probably getting used to hitting the reset button.
Then, on his sixth attempt, and in less than 90 minutes, Wade pitched a perfect game. He submitted the tape to 2K Games and called his wife and told her, “Honey, I’m done. I don’t need to play anymore.”
Congratulations! A million bucks is quite a lot. Now, if only 2k Games would launch another million dollar contest for a perfect game. I am sure there will be lots of people who will attempt to win it this time.
