CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa – Perfect Game President Jerry Ford today announced that the world’s largest youth baseball and softball platform and scouting service has reached an agreement with the city of Cedar Park, Texas, to construct a state-of-the-art athletic and hospitality complex to serve as its Central Texas home. 
In addition to 16 turf baseball/softball fields spread across 112 acres, this major construction initiative will also include a convention center/hotel, and commercial and residential properties featuring state-of-the-art designs and technology. 
The project is a partnership between Perfect Game, Austin Capital Advisors, and the City of Cedar Park.
“We believe that Cedar Park's leadership shares our vision and goals for not only the games of baseball and softball, but the community as well,” Ford said. “This project will benefit the community through the large local economic impact Perfect Game delivers by hosting best-in-class tournaments and related activities that attract hundreds of thousands of families from across the United States.”
Cedar Park Mayor Corbin Van Arsdale said, “Economic vitality is one of our City Council’s strategic goals, and this partnership with Perfect Game literally hits it out of the park. This project with the leading baseball and softball scouting organization in the country will generate more than $20 million in new net revenue to the City of Cedar Park and will attract an entire new economy that expands employment and business opportunities for decades to come.”
“As a local resident in Central Texas myself, I am excited to be the Master Developer of this project. I commend the ability of Cedar Park’s leadership to possess the vision and strategic goals to facilitate the many local economic impacts and community related benefits this project will generate for the City of Cedar Park and its community is astounding,” said Austin Capital Advisors Principal, Josh Sanders.   
Construction of the facility is expected to start June 1, 2022 and be completed by March 1, 2024.  Under the terms of the agreement, Perfect Game will provide the city free use of the ball fields for the community, local nonprofits and governmental entities for a minimum of 25 days per year.  
Perfect Game hosts more than 8,600 events and more than 300,000 youth baseball and softball games a year.  More than 1,600 young athletes have gone on to play Major League Baseball after appearing in Perfect Game events during their amateur years. Since 2003, 13,324 Perfect Game alumni have been selected in the MLB first-year, amateur player draft.  During the 2021 MLB draft, all 36 players selected on the first day (29 first round picks, one compensation pick and six competitive balance round A picks) played in Perfect Game events, and 95-percent of all players chosen in the 2021 draft are former Perfect Game participants.
