Take-Two calls Pujols up to The BIGS

St. Louis Cardinals first baseman named cover athlete for publisher's upcoming arcade-style baseball game.


The Bigs

In choosing a cover athlete for the upcoming arcade-style baseball game The BIGS, publisher Take-Two Interactive wanted a player that reflected the game's focus on over-the-top action and a pick-up-and-play learning curve.

As a result, the company today announced St. Louis Cardinals first baseman Albert Pujols as its choice to grace the game's cover. As the youngest player to reach the 250 home run milestone, Pujols' power hitting qualifies as "over the top," and the 2001 National League Rookie of the Year is equally familiar with the concept of "pick up and play."

The BIGS is scheduled for release this summer on the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Wii, PlayStation 2, and PlayStation Portable.
