FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE 

 

PERFECT GAME PARTNERS WITH MICHIGAN-BASED  

BASEBALL ALL TRAVEL LEAGUE 

 

Sanford, Florida (Wednesday, February 28, 2024) - Perfect Game, the world’s largest youth baseball and softball platform and scouting service, today announced a new partnership with Baseball All Travel League (BATL) out of Grand Rapids, Mich., which will see the two companies combine to present a streamlined approach to travel baseball events across the entire state of Michigan. 

 

Initially, Perfect Game and BATL will jointly host 11 weekend events this year, the first of which is the 2024 PG BATL On the Bases, scheduled for the weekend of April 12-14 at Meijer Sports Complex in Rockford, Mich.  

 

BATL is a non-profit organization established in 2018 to create an opportunity for West Michigan baseball teams to play against higher level competition in the area each week. Players at each age level compete against one another to help drive individual development and maximize their full potential. 

 

BATL has traditionally run six to eight annual events in western Michigan with plans to exponentially increase that number through its partnership with Perfect Game. Together, the companies are eyeing significant growth to gain added exposure for amateur baseball players in the state of Michigan via showcases and all-state games.
