In January, 2K Sports put up a $1 million prize for the first person to pitch a perfect game in MLB 2K10. Today an Alabama man is $1 million richer.
Pitching a perfect baseball game is no easy feat. It's only happened 16 times since 1900, but of course in real life baseball they only have one season a year. With thousands of players playing several seasons between the game's release and the May 1 contest deadline, there were plenty of entries to the 2K Sports contest as early as two days after the game hit store shelves. However only one could be the first, and that one is Alabama's Wade McGilberry.
