2K Sports has just announced that their $1 Million Perfect Game Challenge will kick off at 9:00AM PST this morning and continue through April 20th at 11:59PM PST. Eight players who pitch perfect games will win an all-expense-paid trip to NYC in May for a live single elimination tournament at the MLB FanCave to determine the final winner.

The challenge is available to anyone who’s picked up the game for Xbox 360 and PS3 and will be determined by an online leaderboard. Just don’t think you can just pick the best pitcher in the game and set the game to easy mode. Pitching a perfect game alone won’t be enough. 2K Sports is using an algorithm to determine the “most perfect” games. They’re going to base that on difficulty, pitcher selected, number of strikeouts and other factors that have no baring what-so-ever on an actual perfect game.

The final tournament will go down on May 9th and 10th. For complete rules on the challenge you can check out their official Facebook page.
