MLB 2K13 Perfect Game Challenge rules change, now awards best pitchers for each team

New, 5 comments

MLB 2K13's Perfect Game Challenge, the latest in an annual series of contests which award players who can complete a game without letting a single player on base, will experience a format change this year.

As detailed in the video above, whoever pitches the best game while playing as each of Major League Baseball's 30 teams will take home a prize of $25,000 each. The top four players for the entire league will be brought to the MLB All-Star Week held in New York this July, where they'll compete for a grand prize of $250,000, for a total pool of $1 million up for grabs overall.

The competition starts April 1, the baseball season's opening day. MLB 2K13 launches on Xbox 360 and PS3 March 5, giving players roughly a month to get their pitching arm ready.
