PG Select Baseball Festival
In the spirit of growing the game of baseball while providing the platform for its elite players to develop and showcase their skills, Perfect Game is excited to announce the 3rd Annual Perfect Game Select Baseball Festival. This year's event will take place on Labor Day Weekend 2018, with the crown event being a game featuring the very best 14u players in North America. The game will be played on Sunday, September 2, at 7:00 p.m. EST at JetBlue Park, the Spring Training home of the Boston Red Sox, which also serves as the site for countless other PG events, including the annual Junior National and National Showcases each June.
The Perfect Game Select Baseball Festival will consist of the best 14u eligible players picked by the Perfect Game staff based on performances at all Perfect Game events. The Sunday evening game will be broadcast live nationally, while radio play-by-play will also be part of the extensive media coverage and presentation.
Perfect Game is humbled and honored to be able to have proceeds from this event benefit Barbara's Friends - Golisano Children’s Hospital Cancer Fund. Golisano Children's Hospital is the only children’s hospital between Tampa and Miami, and it provides vital healthcare for the region’s sick and injured children and their families, from infancy through age 18. Each player participating in the tournament will be individually fundraising for the Children's Hospital. Over the past two years, players have raised more than $56,000! We hope you will once again support the players, and in turn, countless other children across Southwest Florida.
Perfect Game is proud to have assisted in the development of more than 1,000 MLB players and hundreds of thousands of college committed athletes since it was founded in 1995. All Perfect Game events are run in full compliance with Major League Baseball’s Pitch Smart initiative.
