About the Game: 

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. Players that attend regional showcases in the spring may be invited to participate in the National Showcase–a collection of the top 300 players–held in mid-June in Phoenix, Ariz. at Chase Field, home of the Arizona Diamondbacks. From there most of the final selections for the Classic are made. These players are the future stars of the MLB.
Far more than just a game, the event provides a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for the players selected. While in San Diego the players will participate in a series of baseball related activities in addition to a visit to Rady Children's Hospital, as well as the event's annual awards dinner banquet held on Saturday night.
