Perfect game earns gamer a perfect million

NEW YORK (AP) - You might want to bite your tongue next time you tell your kids there's no money to be made playing video games.

Wade McGilberry of Mobile, AL is a million dollars richer for doing just that. He won the cash prize for becoming the first person to pitch a perfect game in "Major League Baseball 2K10."

He did it March 2 - about an hour and a half after breaking open his copy of the game on the day it was released.

McGilberry and his wife, Katy, plan to pay off their mortgage and start a family with the winnings.

For those who aren't up on baseball - a perfect game is when you keep no batter from the other team from scoring or reaching base - no hits, no walks, no errors - 27 up, and 27 down.
