Continuing to expand its efforts in leading the amateur baseball industry, Perfect Game recently announce that Wellington native Anthony Tralongo has been selected for the second annual 14U Select Baseball Festival to be held the afternoon of Saturday, Sept. 5 at Chickasaw Bricktown Ballpark in Oklahoma City.
Other Floridians chosen for the honor include Coral Springs native Christian Rodriguez, Fort Lauderdale native Daniel Cuvet, Manuelle Marin and Brandon Olivera of Hialeah, and Miami native Eduardo Fernandez.
Far more than just a game, the event provides a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for the players selected. While in Oklahoma City, the players will participate in a series of baseball-related activities, in addition to a visit to the Oklahoma City National Memorial, site of the April 19, 1995 bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building.
In the weeks leading up to the event, players will have the opportunity to participate in a fundraising effort to help support the Toby Keith Foundation’s OK Kids Korral, which benefits families with children battling cancer. Prior to the game, players will visit with children at the OK Kids Korral, which provides a cost-free, convenient and comfortable home for pediatric cancer patients.
“The Perfect Game Cares Foundation is proud to partner with our 2020 14U Select players to raise important funds for underserved children through the PG Cares Rise initiative, as well as the children and families of the OK Kids Korral in Oklahoma City,” said Jennifer Ford, executive director of the Perfect Game Cares Foundation. “Together, we can make a difference in the lives of these beautiful children.”
