In 2012, the contest was changed so that the top eight pitchers to throw the most perfect games would fly to New York to compete in person for the grand prize, with 21-year-old Christopher Gilmore taking home the prize in the end.
This year, the person who throws the most perfect games with each team between April 1st and 30th will be taking home $25,000. Then, the top four pitchers overall will be taken to New York during MLB All-Star Week in July to compete for a $250,000 prize.
It might seem like less money than the $1 million prize in recent years, but it gives more players a chance to win by splitting them up and having them choose their team. It still totals $1 million overall, so no need to worry.
MLB 2K13 will hit stores on March 5, 2013.
