Perfect Game, the world's largest youth baseball and softball platform and scouting service, announced the 20th Annual Perfect Game All-American Classic will be moved to Chase Field, home of the Arizona Diamondbacks. Former Diamondbacks All-Star and World Series hero, Luis Gonzalez, will serve as this year's All-American Classic Honorary Chairman.

The All-American Classic will be played on Sunday, August 28 (5:00 PM local time). Far more than just a game, the event provides a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for the players selected. Players have the opportunity to fundraise to help children in need. All proceeds will benefit the Make-A-Wish Foundation and the Perfect Game Cares Foundation's Grow the Game Fund for underserved children across America.

The Perfect Game Cares Foundation, will host a free Grow the Game Youth Camp for Phoenix children ages 12 and under leading up to the big game. Stay tuned for more details!

 

 

PG Cares/Make-A-Wish Foundation Fundraising Competition

NOTE: Fundraising competition cutoff is 12 PM MST on Saturday, August 27. Top fundraisers will receive their awards at the banquet.

Proceeds of the Perfect Game All-American Classic go to support the Make-A-Wish Foundation and the Perfect Game Cares Foundation's Grow the Game Fund for America's underserved youth.

 

All-American Players:

In the weeks leading up to the game, every player in the Perfect Game All-American Classic will have the opportunity to conduct an online fundraising contest to raise funds for Make-A-Wish Foundation. Since the inception of the PGAAC, more than $1.5 million has been raised with the bulk of it going to the Peckham Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders at Rady Children’s Hospital.

Together, we can make a real difference in the lives of these kids. Every dollar we raise gets us that much closer to changing the narrative for these families.

Player's personal fundraising pages will launch prior to the game. We will email players their personal fundraising link. Make sure to personalize your page! We are so excited to work with the 2022 All-Americans!

 

Who were the top fundraisers in 2021?

Dylan Lesko with $20,325 and Carsten Sabathia with $13,450, with Dylan breaking the fundraising record of $15,000 set by Drew Bowser in 2019!

                                                                           

FREE GAME TICKETS AVAILABLE

Beginning in 2018, PG Cares extended free tickets to all local families for admission to the game. We will continue that tradition in 2022 and hope to see the stands at Chase Field full of Phoenix families. It will be a great day at the park, watching the best of the rising senior high school baseball players, while raising money for the Make a Wish Foundation and underserved youth across America through the Perfect Game Cares Foundation.
