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.
