Jerry Ford, President of Perfect Game announced that the 2019 Perfect Game All-American Classic will take place on Sunday, August 11in San Diego, Calif. This is the 17th annual edition of the country’s premier high school baseball All-Star Game and the 11th year in a row the game will be played at Petco Park, home of the San Diego Padres.
The rosters are comprised of the 50 best high school seniors from across the nation. The players are identified and selected through a series of Perfect Game events.
Far more than just a game, the event provides a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for the players selected. While in San Diego the All-American players will participate in a series of baseball related activities in addition to a visit to Rady Children's Hospital, a lunch with Honorary Chairman Trevor Hoffman on a beach alongside the Pacific Ocean as well as the event's annual awards dinner banquet held on Saturday night.
Rady Children's Hospital: Fundraising Competition
Proceeds of the Perfect Game All-American Classic go to support pediatric cancer research and treatment, specifically to the event’s beneficiary, Rady Children’s Hospital.
In the weeks leading up to the game, every player in the Classic will have the opportunity to conduct an online fundraising contest to raise funds for the Hospital. Since the inception of the Classic, more than $1,000,000 has been raised with the bulk of it going to the Peckham Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders at Rady Children’s Hospital since the game moved to San Diego.
