FORT MYERS, Fla. – The most elite athletes from the high school class of 2021 from across the nation, as well as one participant representing Puerto Rico, Venezuela and the Dominican Republic, will take center stage at JetBlue Park in Fort Myers, Florida. Team East will battle Team West in the second annual 14u Perfect Game Select Baseball Festival held during Labor Day weekend.

The players qualified for the Festival by showcasing their abilities in Perfect Game tournament, showcase and PG Series events. The final selections took place upon the completion of the inaugural 14u National Showcase, which was held the weekend of August 5-6.

The 40 participants range from 17 different states along with Puerto Rico, Venezuela and the Dominican Republic. The players will be housed at the Hyatt Regency Coconut Point Resort and Spa overlooking the Gulf of Mexico for the weekend, as they will get to take part in numerous activities on and off the field.

Perfect Game is humbled and honored to be able to have proceeds from this game benefit Golisano Children’s Hospital of Southwest Florida. GCH is the only children’s hospital between Tampa and Miami, and it provides vital healthcare for the region’s sick and injured children and their families, from infancy through age 18. There is no player participation fee for all of the players selected and the weekend will include an awards dinner for the athletes and their families.

Players are given the opportunity to fundraise for the Golisano Children’s Hospital of Southwest Florida with individual pages in which they can get donors to help the cause. For more information on how you can help, please visit the following link:
