What people are saying about our events
The feedback we’ve received has been tremendous. Here are just a few quotes:
As a dad of a player who played in your tournament this past weekend – wow!!! PGBA KC is a refreshing tournament holder in Kansas City. The event and especially the UMPS! man the UMPS were awesome – KC is known for having tournaments and you just get UMPS not up to par – I was very impressed with the event – the staff – the umps – everything. not sure how many BC Rawlings Prospects will enter of PGBA tournaments, but I hope a few more. Just wanted you guys to know – word travels fast – keep doing what you are doing and don’t ever let up or look for the cheap or easy way out – the way you ran this past weekend and got things done with the rain! Class Act, dont change!!! -Chris Rooney
Great to play in a baseball tournament put on by baseball people. Everything was run very smoothly and the quick thinking to secure turf facilities for Sunday saved bracket play. Can’t wait for Five Four Elite to play in another PGBA KC event. -Andrew McGuire
Great experience put on by baseball people who have the best interests of the players as well as the teams!! Well done PGBAKC!! -Courtney Giron

|Quotes from some of the top names in baseball|
|“That was kind of the first time when you’re playing competition that’s most similar to the minor leagues, and I feel like if I wouldn’t have done any of those events I wouldn’t have had any experience against the top pitchers and top guys around the league. I learned the speed of baseball and how much different it is than high school, and I think the only place you can get that from is Perfect Game.”|
|“Perfect Game is a leading resource for anyone interested in amateur baseball, running top-notch events throughout the year which are followed closely by our scouts. Organized and efficient, Perfect Game is on top of their game.” – Brian Cashman, Sr. Vice President and GM, New York Yankees.|
|“The player information Perfect Game provides to MLB organizations is extremely valuable. The Perfect Game events, scouting reports, and rankings are very important to the Red Sox scouting department. It’s common knowledge in professional and college baseball that Perfect Game is the undeniable leader in running amateur showcases and tournaments.”|
former General Manager
Boston Red Sox
|“Those were great experiences. Just to get out of (New) Jersey and see the competition from all across the country and to compete against other players that were doing the same things you were trying to do — get to the professional level. It was just good to get that exposure.”|
|“(The PG events) gave me the opportunity to play against some really good competition. It allows you step outside your comfort zone a little bit, and I have really fond memories of those days, doing the Perfect Game events and the All-American Classic.”|
|“Anything Perfect Game is involved with is followed closely by colleges and professional baseball. They are the very best at what they do. No one creates more opportunities for young players.”|
Special Assistant to GM
|“We feel that they put on, and it’s not even close, the best showcases and tournaments of anybody. They’re so well organized…They’re the best and the top colleges and the highest level scouts know it. ”|
