AFLAC CLASSIC & MUCH MORE

Perfect Game Staff        
August 4th through August 6th the baseball fans in the Baltimore, Maryland area will have the opportunity to see most of the highest ranked high school players in the nation.

The nationally televised AFLAC Classic has quickly become the #1 event for high school players. Last year’s Classic produced 9 players who were selected by Major League organizations in the first round of this years MLB Draft. A few others were selected in the second round. These players came from the 38 prospects who were selected to play in the 2003 AFLAC Classic.

In an effort to improve the overall attraction for scouts and college recruiters, Perfect Game USA will hold a showcase featuring another 30 to 40 of the top high school prospects in the country. The AFLAC player workouts and PG player workouts will be held in conjunction on the 4th and 5th of August. On the afternoon of the 5th the PG players will play a nine inning game. Perfect Game is responsible for selecting each of the players for both the AFLAC Classic and the PG USA showcase. Needless to say, there will be a very large number of high draft picks that will come out of these two events. 25 of the top 26 ranked players in America are on the AFLAC rosters. All 40 of the AFLAC players are ranked in the top 88 in the country and 38 are ranked in the top 58.

The Perfect Game rosters will include most of the other high ranked players and some big surprises who will become top 100 or maybe even top 20 players in the next rankings when they are released. We will be releasing the PG rosters early next week.

We have received feedback that indicates many MLB front office people will be attending. This includes MLB General Managers and Scouting Directors. The one thing we are sure of is that all will leave happy and the players will get the highest level of exposure possible.
