Perfect Game National Pre-draft Workout

May 12th and May 14th
Where: Cedar Rapids, Iowa, Veterans Memorial Stadium

This year the annual pre-draft held by Perfect Game will be the best pre-draft workout ever! Many of the nations top prospects have confirmed their attendance and will be in Cedar Rapids.

All 30 MLB clubs should have their highest level scouts cover the event. In fact it looks like nearly all the MLB Scouting Directors and many General Managers will be in Cedar Rapids. The pre-draft usually draws 100 or more scouts and college coaches. This year that number should increase dramatically. While Perfect Game does events that have larger total numbers of scouts in attendance, only the PG/Baseball America World Wood Bat Championship can compete as a draw for attracting so many MLB front office personnel.

We will hold the Iowa player workout on Sunday May 12th at Xavier high school in Cedar Rapids. Some high level prospects from other states may attend this one because their schedule does not allow for them to attend the May 14th event at Veterans Memorial Stadium.

We are continually contacting prospects from all over the country. We will not release the final rosters until Friday of next week. At that time, we will list the roster on this website. We can safely say that these rosters will be loaded with high draft picks.

Scouts, College Coaches, Advisors, etc. who need more information or any assistance, feel free to call our office at - 319-298-2923 or email to - Our office hours are 9 to 9 Mon through Thursday, 9 to 6 Friday and Saturday, Noon to 6 on Sundays.
