A LOOK BACK at the 2004 Perfect Game National
Published: Thursday, February 10, 2005

Held at Tropicana Field

Last year's Perfect Game National at Tropicana Field had the best talent top to bottom of any Showcase in baseball.

Here is an updated look at many of the top players from the PG National Showcase. They are listed in approximate order of how they are currently ranked nationally. The list also includes the player's college commitment if he has signed during the early period. Some players without a college listed could have signed, but we are not aware of it at this time.

We have included a list of other top unsigned (to our knowledge) PG National players at the bottom. Being listed at the bottom does not mean they are less talented. In fact, several of those listed at the bottom will be drafted by MLB clubs and have the ability to play for any college in America.

We also included the few 06 prospects that stood out at least year's PG National.

This year's Perfect Game National will take place in June at Turner Field in Atlanta. (Home of the Atlanta Braves)
