The Perfect Game Select Baseball Festival to benefit 

Golisano Children's Hospital of SW Florida 

September 4th-September 6th, 2020

 

About the Game:

The premier showcase event at the 14u level in all of youth baseball, is set to return to JETBLUE Park in Fort Myers, Fla., for a fifth straight year in 2020. Activities surrounding the 5th annual PG 14u Select Baseball Festival will take place Sept. 4 - Sept. 6, over the Labor Day Weekend.
The game itself will be played on Sunday, Sept. 6 at JETBLUE Park – the spring training home of the Boston Red Sox – and will be televised live and live-streamed on MLB.com. Many of the specific details of the four-day schedule are still being finalized.

Forty-four of the top age-eligible 14u prospects from across North America will be invited to attend this year’s Festival, and most will come from the national high school class of 2023. The players are selected based on their performances at PG 14u events held throughout the summer. Those can include attendance at one of PG 14u regional showcases from where they can earn an invitation to the 2020 PG 14u National Showcase.

Once selected, the young players will enjoy a baseball experience unlike any other they have had up to this point in their careers. They will be housed at the Hyatt Regency Coconut Point Resort and Spa in Bonita Springs overlooking the Gulf of Mexico during their four-day stay and will be able to enjoy a lot of the unique experiences Southwest Florida has to offer.

Golisano Children's Hospital of SW Florida        

As proud as Perfect Game is for being able to showcase the young prospects on the national stage the Select Festival offers, it is also honored to have all of the proceeds from the event benefit Golisano Children’s Hospital of Southwest Florida; GHC is the only children’s hospital between Tampa and Miami. Golisano is one of the central themes of why the game was created as a way of lending a helping hand to children and families.
Each player will have their own fundraising page in which they can raise money. A check will be presented on the field during the game to GCH with the total funds raised. Players will also have the opportunity to spend quality time with the children under treatment at Golisano during their weekend activities.
The players and their families are also involved in fund-raising efforts for GHC, bringing in much-needed additional funding that complements the event proceeds. Last year’s participants raised in excess of $47,375.00 which brought the three-year total to more than $128,000. “I think it’s just incredible that at their young age that they feel it in their heart not only to continue to play the game that they love but they can also have the opportunity to give back to kids that are less fortunate and are sick in our hospital system,” Lee County Health Senior Special Events Manager Jason Powella told PG last year.

2019Top Fundraiser: Cade Kurland who raised $9000.00
