General Questions


We are the largest and most complete amateur baseball scouting service in the world, hosting more than 100 showcases and tournaments each year. We host showcases all over the United States that feature many of the best young players in the country. Our showcases are the perfect platform to see how you stack up with the best players in the country. Our WWBA and BCS tournaments are attended by many of the top travel teams in the country.
Perfect Game gives players a quality environment to be seen by college coaches and Major League scouts. Coaches from nearly all of the 309 NCAA Division I programs regularly attends our events, along with coaches from Division II, Division III, NAIA and junior colleges. All 30 Major League teams also send scouts to our events, greatly enhancing each player’s visibility. Our events also give players an opportunity to gauge their skills against their peers and have a positive experience.
Our tournaments range in age from 9U to 18U and/or corresponding HS graduation year. Our showcases are typically geared toward high school players, but college players and free agents are invited to some events.
Members of the Perfect Game staff file detailed scouting reports on the players at all of our events, and those reports are made available to college coaches and pro scouts for their use through a subscription service. We provide biographical material and contact information, as well as baseball analysis. We also offer a video service through BaseballWebTV. We also publish player rankings, team rankings, pre-draft analysis of high school and college players, feature stories on amateurs and pros, interviews, game stories and much more on our web site.
The information comes from the vast network of Perfect Game scouts around the country and from their contacts.

Showcase Questions


The most important things to evaluate on any player are his physical tools. For a position player, that is his hitting ability, fielding ability, speed/range, power potential and arm strength. For a pitcher, it is evaluating his delivery and arm action, along with his selection of pitches (i.e. fastball, curveball, changeup, etc.). A scout is also evaluating how much better he thinks a player is getting with normal growth and hard work (i.e. his projectability) for his body type and athleticism. Attention is definitely paid to a player’s intangibles as much as possible (i.e. hustle, character on and off the field, etc.). One thing that is not especially important is performance, because anything can happen at a short showcase event.
Top Prospect showcases target upcoming seniors. We have stricter guidelines for inviting or approving players for these showcases and often require players to have been seen by PG staff or other reputable sources.
There are some showcases that attract hundreds of scouts and college coaches and there are some that will have much fewer. The most important thing to keep in mind is that thousands of colleges and all MLB teams utilize Perfect Game’s website as an important scouting tool.
PG dedicates our service not only to the players but to the scouts and college coaches. It starts with only inviting players that we think recruiters would want to see. Having prospects at our events and on our website increases their exposure to scouts and college coaches and allows the scouting community to utilize PG as an important scouting tool.
PG scouts take notes on players at our tournaments, but it is at the showcase where we get more detailed information on each of the participants. Whatever activity the prospect is involved with on the field, our scouts watch and record detailed notes. During the workout sessions, we record 60-yard dash times and every throw from the infield, outfield and behind the plate gets radar-gunned. Catchers get their pop times recorded and pitchers get evaluated and their velocities recorded during scrimmage play. We also capture Zepp Hitting Metrics (bat speed at impact, hand speed max and time to impact). We video tape the workout portion of the showcase and video clips will be posted along with a comprehensive written report and PG grade on our website, which are heavily followed by college coaches and scouts. If you are looking for the highest level of exposure, you will want to attend a Perfect Game showcase.
Every participant at a Perfect Game showcase will be provided the opportunity to take part in a workout session, which typically includes a 60-yard dash and infield, outfield and catching throws to measure arm velocities, along with a batting practice session and a Zepp Hitting Text. Prospects will be divided into teams and full-length games (usually 10 innings) will be played to provide pitchers an opportunity to get in front of college coaches and scouts and give position players an opportunity to perform in game situations.
Without Skillshow you will still be able to see short video clips of skills performed (i.e. pitching, throwing from outfield, bp, etc). Skillshow will Maximize & lengthen your showcase experience by getting a professionally produced video & using it long after the event! You can learn more at the this link - Videos.

It is limited to 85 teams, with well over 200 wanting in. There are 7 spots for Qualifier winners. The only way to get a new team into this event that doesn’t win a Qualifier is if a team drops out, which doesn’t happen very often.

1. Teams that want to return to the 17u WWBA that participated in the event last year.

Rankings Questions


We carefully analyze all of the information at our disposal before making the rankings. We rely on personal observation, scouting reports, input from coaches and input from other scouts, trying to make the rankings as accurate as possible. The rankings are regularly adjusted as we receive new information.
Definitely not, although a huge percentage (well over 90 percent) of the top players in the country attend multiple Perfect Game showcases and tournaments. While it’s not necessary to attend a Perfect Game Showcase, it has become a big advantage for many players and allows us to make evaluations much more accurate. The more we see a player, the more we know about him, the more everyone knows about him. Our scouts attend many of the top high school events around the country, including the Area Code game, East Coast Professional Showcase, Junior Olympics and Tournament of Stars, to name a few. We also are continually talking to a network of professional scouts and college recruiters to identify the best players around the country. Our goal is to have the most comprehensive and complete rankings possible.
