It was just a matter of time


Some dude from Alabama claimed it.

But for 24-year-old Wade McGilberry, there was a more, uh, practical motivation: $1 million, which is exactly how much the Alabama man just won for throwing a perfect game in MLB 2K10 for the Xbox 360 and PS3.

"It was actually my wife who convinced me to go for it," he said in a statement. "I never thought I'd actually win a million dollars playing a video game, it's all still sinking in for me."

I was actually going to try until I read all the stipulations. That eliminated any possibility of a swindle happening.

[h1]Kenshin Kawakami hurls perfect game (sorta)[/h1]


By Christian Boone

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution

You mean the same Kenshin Kawakami who has zero wins and a 5.47 ERA for the Atlanta Braves this year? Yes -- in name only.

The computerized Kawakami did, in fact, toss a perfect game underthe shrewd guidance of  a 24-year-old retirement account specialistfrom Semmes, Ala. The feat earned Wade McGilberry $1 million forthrowing the first verified perfect game in 2K Sports' "Major LeagueBaseball 2K10."

"I was playing as the Braves against the Mets, pitching as Kawakami," McGilberry told ESPN.com. "The way [the contest] worked, you could only choose the real-life games and lineups from that day. I mainly chose the Braves because they were the local team. I'm a White Sox fan, so I'm not crazy about the Braves. But I'm even less crazy about the Mets."

McGilberry said his wife, Katie, convinced him to enter the contest.

"A few weeks before the competition, I saw an ad on Xbox Live forit," he told ESPN. "I went to her and said, ‘Honey, can I go out andbuy this game? I might win a million dollars.' We don't normally buynew games. She said, ‘Yeah, that sounds like a good opportunity.' "

McGilberry said he had played the game only five times before. "The sixth game it just happened," he said. "Almost magically."

Any tips for fellow gamers?

"I didn't try to overpower hitters," he said. "I looked at the hotand cold zones, and I would actually never throw it over the middle.Just stay around the corners, keep it low, throw it weaker so theywould be more likely to swing at it. I got a lot of ground outs."

Sounds like good advice for Kawakami, who's 7-19 in his Bravescareer. For the record, the real Kawakami lost that April 23rd startagainst the Mets, allowing six hits and three runs in six inningspitched.
