Today marks the launch of MLB 11 The Show and also marks the first Challenge of the Week, a new feature in MLB 11 The Show where you compete to win real world prizes. Challenge of the Week #1 features a match-up from “Yankee Killer”, Joe Mauer vs C.C Sabathia. The challenge will run from March 8 at 9am PST to Monday March 14 4:30 PST. This week you can compete for a chance to win a signed Joe Mauer Jersey or a MLB 11 Dual Shock Controller.
So what exactly is the Challenge of the Week?
“Challenge of the week is a fast paced and fun arcade style mode where the goal is to score as many points as possible. You’re the batter and you get 3 outs with 3 strikes per out. Your overall score consists of your points and momentum (aka multiplier). The longer the hit, the more points you get. The better the hit, the more momentum you earn. There will also be weekly bonuses to help with racking up points. Challenge of the Week will feature the hottest batters and pitchers during the MLB Season so check back to see if we feature a player from your favorite MLB Team.”
