Chase Field to host 20th Perfect Game All-American Classic
Chase Field, the home of the Arizona Diamondbacks, will host the 20th annual Perfect Game All-American Classic on Sunday at 5 p.m.
The game will feature more than 50 of the top-ranked high school baseball players in the United States, Canada and Puerto Rico.
Perfect Game’s non-profit foundation will feature events around the game on Friday and Saturday, hoping to raise money for the Make-A-Wish Foundation and the Perfect Game Cares Foundation’s Grow the Game Fund “grant wishes for children bravely battling illness … and raise funds to grow the games of baseball and softball in underserved and at-risk communities across America.”
Fans can donate to the funds by visiting the Perfect Game All-American Classic fundraising website or texting PGAAC to 71777.
“The Arizona Diamondbacks and Chase Field are honored to welcome Perfect Game and its prestigious All-American Classic game to Phoenix,” Diamondbacks CEO Derrick Hall said in a release.
“We anticipate great support from the baseball-loving fans in and around the Phoenix area, as they will have a unique opportunity to watch some of the sport’s future stars display their tremendous athletic skills on the Chase Field diamond before they become household names. We’re also looking forward to supporting some very important causes and efforts to grow the game of baseball through the various activities planned by the Perfect Game Cares Foundation. This is a win-win situation for all involved, most importantly area youth and the sport of baseball.”
