MLB 2K12 Perfect Game Challenge officially begins

The MLB 2K12 $1 Million Perfect Game Challenge is officially underway.

Beginning today, April 4, 2012 at 9:00:01 a.m. PST, players can begin their quest for baseball perfect in Major League Baseball 2K12.  Contestants will have until April 30, 2012 at 11:59:59 p.m. PST to throw a perfect game with any pitcher against any team.  The eight finalists who achieve perfect and are selected will earn an all-expense-paid trip to New York City in May to compete in a live, single-elimination tournament at the MLB FanCave to determine who wins the grand prize of $1 million (or about $24 million less than A-Rod makes for sitting on the D/L for the Yankees).

Here's the catch: the eight finalists will be determined by a dynamic leaderboard ranking the "most perfect" games thrown.  Using a custom algorithm that takes into account the degree of difficulty (such as the opposing team’s offensive prowess and selected pitcher’s skill) and degree of perfection (number of strikeouts, pitching efficiency), 2K Sports will rank each perfect game thrown with the top eight contestant qualifying for the competition.

The final tournament will be played in New York City at the MLB FanCave on May 9th and 10th.  For complete rules on this years Perfect Game Challenge, visit the MLB 2K Facebook Page.
