Justin Verlander is no longer just a star pitcher for the Detroit Tigers, he's a video game star as well. Verlander, and Los Angeles Angels pitcher C.J. Wilson show off their pitching prowess in the first digital commercial for MLB 2K12.

Although the American League MVP and Cy Young winner has accomplished a lot, he's never thrown a perfect game. Now Verlander (and anyone else who's good with a game controller) can join the 'Perfect Club' and have a chance at $1 million. MLB 2K12 will be released on March 6, 2012, and is available for pre-order now.

Check out JV's commercial (He's part cheetah, part ninja!) and his appearance on Conan from earlier this year.


Last month, Verlander visited with Conan O'Brien, and revealed that he eats Taco Bell before each game.
