"Our goal is to help children understand there is a path, no matter how difficult it may seem. To provide the path to something they may know nothing about. We want to work with other organizations and people that truly care about our many at-risk children. We are a baseball business, and we utilize that, but PG Cares is about helping and inspiring children, girls and boys, to realize there is hope for a bright future. Those results will be our greatest achievement." - Jerry Ford, Perfect Game Founder and President

Poverty is the single greatest threat to a child's well-being.
All children have one thing in common...they do not choose the circumstances in which they were born.
With help...children can Rise! Rise out of illness! Rise out of poverty! Rise to a brighter future!
