23 year-old wins $1M playing baseball video game

Shh, don't tell the kids. Wade McGilberry just won a million dollars playing a video game.

The 23-year-old from Mobile, Ala., took just an hour and a half to pitch a perfect game in Take-Two Interactive Software Inc.'s "Major League Baseball 2K10."

Take-Two was giving away the prize to the first person to accomplish the feat, and says the contest helped boost sales of the game.

A perfect game, where no batter from the other team ever scores or reaches a base, is among the rarest feats in sports. Only 18 pitchers have thrown perfect games in the history of Major League Baseball.
