    Brian Kingrey, 25, used Philliles ace Roy Halladay to throw a perfect game, earning him a $1 million check

    ...He practiced about four to five hours a day and got the perfect game on his third try on Opening Day. Kingrey said he watches more baseball now and is a newly minted Phillies fan.

    He and his wife got married October and just bought a new house. He said they are going to use some of the prize money to get a new refrigerator to replace the dorm-room sized one they are using right now. (Which should leave a bit of cash to play with, unless it's a really, really nice refrigerator).

    Kingrey plans to meet Halladay later this year and thank him for helping him win the contest....
