2K Sports Plans A Perfect $1 Million Party For 'MLB 2K11' Wannabe Pitchers

Action from 'MLB 2K11', where pitching the first perfect game will again be rewarded with a cool million dollars.March 29, 2011: Last year, 2K Sports received national attention when it offered $1 million to the first person who could pitch a perfect game on its MLB 2K10 videogame. Wade McGilberry from Alabama then received the same attention when he used Kenshin Kawakami (then with the Atlanta Braves) to face and retire 27 MLB 2K10 batters and cash in on 2K's offer.

2K's perfect game challenge is back for MLB 2K11, complete with a multi-media marketing pitch touting the grand prize $1 million offer. This year, to support the official April 1 start of the MLB 2K11 Million Dollar Challenge, the company not only has enlisted the services of Philadelphia Phillies' Roy Halliday (who pitched his own real life perfect game during the 2010 season and then added  post-season no-hitter) and Brian Wilson of the World Series champion San Francisco Giants, but is also having an official event party in New York.

To coincide with the opening of the 2011 MLB season, 2K plans to open the doors to The MLB FanCave, which will be filled with gaming stations loaded up with MLB 2K11. The event, open to the public, will take place at the former site of Tower Records (692 Broadway and East 4th), located near the New York University and Cooper Union campuses.

While giving it their best shots to try for this year’s million dollar grand prize, gamers will be joined not only by pro athletes but also celebrities including McGilberry, who will bring his winning Million Dollar Perfect Game Challenge karma into play.
 
According to 2K, the event will begin at 12 Noon EST, when fans can pick up a controller and use one of the preset videogame stations. Even if no one completes a perfect game during the event, 2K Sports will be giving people the opportunity to hobnob there with the likes of Austin Jackson, of the Detroit Tigers, Joba Chamberlain from the New York Yankees, Hall of Famer "Goose" Gossage, DJ Clue, Pauly D and Fabolous, who are among those scheduled to attend.

It turns out that pitcher Kenshin Kawakami could have time to be one of the people seeking to win the $1 million. After being cut from the Braves' 40-man roster at the end of last season following a 1-10 record and a 5.15 ERA, the 35-year-old right-hander from Japan who "pitched" a perfect MLB 2K10 game for Wade McGilberry participated in spring training with Atlanta as a non-roster invitee but was reassigned to the minors. Since joining Atlanta from Japan's Chunichi Dragons in 2009, Kawakami has gone 8-22 with a 4.32 ERA (not including his videogame perfection).
