CHICAGO – Detroit Tigers pitcher Justin Verlander, who just won the MLB Players Association’s Player of the Year Award, was named the new cover athlete for “Major League Baseball 2K12” this morning. The game is scheduled for release on March 9, 2012.

The decision to pick Verlander as the cover athlete came after a year where the pitcher went 24-5 as a starter and helped take the Tigers to the American League Championship Series, where they fell to the Texas Rangers. Verlander also pitched his second no-hitter in the 2011 season, becoming the thirteenth pitcher to pitch multiple no hitters in his career, and the first since Mark Buehrle did it with the Chicago White Sox.

It’s a dream come true to be on the cover of Major League Baseball 2K12,” Verlander said. “I’ve worked closely with 2K Sports on the MLB 2K series since 2007, and I couldn’t be more excited to continue my relationship with such a great baseball game.”

The game will be released to virtually every gaming console come may, including: Xbox 360, PS3, PS2, PSP, Wii, Nintendo DS, and Windows PC.

  • ThroatPunch

    CHICAGO – The provocative title of Sharon Krome’s new stage play, “ThroatPunch,” does not contain that particular fight technique. But it does have standout performances by the three person cast, as they make their way in Chicago, circa 1983, amid their emerging twentysomething punk rock attitude. The World Premiere of the show has a Thursday-Sunday run at the Chicago Mosaic School through June 3rd, 2018. Click here for more details, including ticket information.

  • Jesus Christ Superstar, Lyric Opera

    CHICAGO – As a wee lad, I would often go into my parent’s record collection. One day, out of the blue, that brown double album with the gold embossed angels appeared, like a gift from the divine. “Jesus Christ Superstar” began as a record album “rock opera” in 1970, evolved to a Broadway show and film, and then was interpreted through a myriad of stage revivals over the years. The latest is an exciting piece of stagecraft at the Lyric Opera of Chicago. The show has a various evening/matinee run through May 20th, 2018.
