As the premier provider of amateur baseball events, hosting the highest quality of travel team
tournaments and individual showcase events throughout the country, Perfect Game is
passionate about raising awareness and utilizing best practices for the safety and care of its
youth baseball players. That is why in early 2019, Perfect Game launched its “PG Athlete Safety
Program” as its zero-tolerance campaign to prevent any type of abuse from occurring at PG
baseball events. This is being done in conjunction with US Congress passing federal legislation
to protect youth sport participants against would-be predators.
Parents can rest assured that Perfect Game will endeavor to promote a safe environment in
Perfect Game events that is free from abuse, including emotional, physical, and sexual abuse,
of any participating amateur athlete.
Effective immediately, Perfect Game is implementing the following company-wide
practices for the prevention of sexual abuse and violent crimes at PG events nationwide:
- Annual Background Checks to be conducted on all Perfect Game employees, umpires,
- Annual Abuse Prevention Education Training to be completed by all Perfect Game
employees, umpires, and subcontractors*;
Mandatory Reporting of suspected abuse to be required for all Perfect Game
Company-wide implementation of Written Policies and Procedures for best practices to
prevent emotional, physical, and sexual abuse of amateur athletes at PG events.
At Perfect Game, the safety of our youth participants is paramount, and parents can trust that
Perfect Game is doing everything in its power to keep kids safe. The “PG Athlete Safety Program”
serves as yet another example of Perfect Game carrying the torch as the industry leader -
providing the highest quality amateur baseball events, while at the same time keeping youth
athletes safe against abuse.
