PERFECT GAME ANNOUNCES DETAILS FOR 2024 JUNIOR AND SOPHOMORE NATIONAL SHOWCASE EVENTS
Sanford, Florida (Thursday, November 16, 2023) - Perfect Game, the world’s largest youth baseball and softball platform and scouting service, today announced details for the 2024 Junior and Sophomore National Showcase events to be played next summer. Both events are the premiere showcase of the year for their respective graduating class.
The Junior National Showcase will be held from June 8-12 at the East Cobb Complex in Marietta, Ga., as the top-ranked 2026 graduates will be competing against each other. Past Junior events have been highlighted by future first-round MLB Draft selections such as Bobby Witt Jr., Riley Greene, Jarred Kelenic, Nolan Gorman and Matthew Liberatore.
East Cobb will also host the third annual Sophomore National Showcase from June 12-14 where the 2027 graduating class will have the opportunity to demonstrate their ability.
Additionally, Perfect Game will host the second annual All-Star Game on August 16 at Chase Field in Phoenix, Ari, home of the National League champion Arizona Diamondbacks. As was the case with last year’s inaugural event, the game will feature the top players at the Junior and Sophomore levels and bridges the gap between the Perfect Game Select Festival and the Perfect Game All-American Classic. The selection process for the All-Star Game will take place throughout the year at various PG events.
