Perfect Game is an organization that defined an industry and remains baseball’s most respected scouting report service.

Perfect Game provides showcases, tournaments, online video, national rankings, player profiles, scouting reports and college and professional opportunities to the nation’s top prospects and their families.

Where talent goes, professional scouts and top college recruiters are sure to follow, and Perfect Game can offer the best in baseball increased exposure, insight and professionalism to propel them through their baseball careers.
Roy Clark: "Jerry (Ford) and his staff do an outstanding job. We feel that they put on, and it’s not even close, the best showcases and tournaments of anybody. They’re so well organized. Jerry has tremendous knowledge of scouting. They have a lot of former professional and college baseball people in their organization.

"Since they put on the best showcases and tournaments, naturally they’re going to get the best players. We are pretty much a high-school oriented organization, so where the best players go, we will be there. We have sometimes up to 10 or 11 scouts covering Perfect Game events. It gives athletes the chance to compete at the highest level of their age group, in a team or showcase format, in some of the best facilities in front of both colleges and scouts.

"They’re (Perfect Game) the best, and the top colleges and the highest level scouts know it."
Perfect Game set a new record for the tenth consecutive year following the 2011 MLB draft. Of the 1,530 players selected, 1,323 had attended a Perfect Game event, and 294 of the first 331 picks were Perfect Game alumni. Many of these alumni had participated in multiple Perfect Game tournaments, showcases and/or leagues.

In the past ten years, 9,073 Perfect Game participants have been chosen in the MLB First-Year Player Draft. However, these figures do not account for the many Latin American free agents who participate in Perfect Game showcases and tournaments and then sign with Major League clubs. One can only imagine how many Perfect Game alumni will ultimately reach their dream of playing Major League Baseball down the road.

Perfect Game does not take any credit for the numerous outstanding players selected in the draft or the many more who go on to play college baseball. Perfect Game simply provides talented players a means to be identified and evaluated closely while competing with and against the best worldwide. Perfect Game identifies players, provides an opinion, and then lets Major League scouts and college coaches form their own.

MLB scouts and college coaches make the most important decisions, and luckily, they follow what we do very closely - not only in person, but online as well.

Since its inception in 1996, the Iowa Fall League has been the most scouted and most competitive spring league in the state of Iowa.  Every single high school draftee from the state of Iowa has participated in the Iowa Wood Bat League.  College coaches and pro scouts know that the best players in Iowa play in the PG league, so they follow the league very closely.

Players sign up as individuals and PG separates them into teams based upon position.  In a lot of instances, players from the same high school are placed on the same team.  Each team plays two games on Saturdays and two games on Sundays.  The league tournament is September 27-28, and will be seeded based upon the first 5 weeks of league play.  Rosters and schedule will be announced on the website August 7.  Any schedule changes and weather delays are announced on the website.  Announcements will also be made through the official league twitter handle of @SteveJamesPG.  


All players who sign up for the Fall League must attend one of the pre-league workouts August 4th or August 5th.  The workout on August 4th will be at Cedar Rapids Washington HS starting at 9 AM.  The workout on August 5th will be at Ames HS field in Brookside Park starting at 9 AM.  The workout is designed as both a tryout for the remaining spots on the Iowa Select Teams as well as to determine fall league roster placement.  A more detailed schedule for those dates will be available online soon.  

Games are played at various locations across Iowa.  Typically games are spread out between Cedar Rapids, Des Moines, Ames, Carroll, Iowa City, and the Waterloo/Cedar Falls area.  For any questions about the league, contact Steve James at sjames@perfectgame.org or 319.298.2923 x 121
