The PlayStation Store is still down as of today, so once again it's sort of an odd week for those who like to buy extra attempts for the Challenge of the Week. This week's pitcher-batter duel is a Freeway Series showodown between Andre Ethier and Jered Weaver.
The prize for the top score this week is a signed ball from one of six MLB players: Cole Hamels, Jose Reyes, Prince Fielder, Buster Posey, Upton (unclear if it's Justin or B.J.) or Cliff Lee. The monthly prize for May is $2,000 cash.
The challenge itself is one that is one of the easier ones to be posted this year. Weaver does not have a dominating fastball, so if you can handle his changeup/curveball combo, then you should be in good shape. Plus, Weaver is not a left-handed pitcher, so Ethier should have no problem taking him over the right-field wall at Dodgers Stadium.
