Cy Young Winner Roy Hallady to Cover MLB 2K11
2K Sports announced today that they have named Philadelphia Phillies ace pitcher, Roy Halladay, as the cover athlete for their upcoming video game Major League Baseball 2K11. Halladay, who this season became one of only 20 pitchers in Major League Baseball history to throw a perfect game, continues 2K Sports’ tradition of bringing today’s premier players to the most realistic sports simulation titles available. Despite gracing the cover of this year’s title and having a phenomenally successful year, Halladay remains humbled at 2K Sports’ prediction that he will win the National League Cy Young Award for his impressive feats on the mound.
“I’m honored to be on the cover of Major League Baseball 2K11,” said Halladay, who also pitched a no-hitter in this year’s Major League Baseball postseason. “I’m not one for predictions, but should 2K Sports be right about tomorrow, well, that would be a great way to end the year.”
Halladay won the 2010 National League Cy Young Award, becoming only the fifth pitcher to win the coveted award in both leagues, as he previously won it in 2003 while a member of the Toronto Blue Jays. Halladay was recently honored by his peers, when he was named the 2010 Players Choice Award winner for the National League Outstanding Pitcher.
