FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Leaf’s 2013 Perfect Game Delivers!
16 Players from 2013 Perfect Game National Showcase
Taken In 1st Round of 2014 MLB Draft!
Carrollton, TX (June 6, 2014) – When Leaf released 2013 Perfect Game National Showcase Baseball last year, we promised that the draft would reflect the awesome prospect laden checklist that it comprised. After day 1 of the 2014 MLB Draft, the numbers reflect exactly what Leaf promised. Of the 34 picks in the 1st round of the draft, 16 were high school players. ALL 16 of those players performed in the 2013 Perfect Game National Showcase!
Day 1 of the draft saw 40 high school players taken out of the 74 possible picks. 32 of those 40 were 2013 Perfect Game National Showcase attendees.
“While the market did not initially understand the concept nor appreciate the incredible checklist appeal,” said Leaf President Brian Gray, “from the beginning we knew this product would provide an incredible opportunity to collect tomorrow’s superstars today.”
Past Perfect Game alumni currently playing in Major League Baseball include Mike Trout, Buster Posey, Joey Votto, Andrew McCutchen, Prince Fielder, Stephen Strasburg, Bryce Harper and MANY others.
