My son, class of 2018, is a catcher who will be attending a Perfect Game event in Colorado in May. Living in Colorado, we decided this was a great opportunity for him. Now I am hearing he should only go to Perfect Game events in the areas in which he wants to go to college. Should he be requesting invitations to other regional events, to include the National Academic in June? Will going to one event be enough, given he scores out well?
Background on him, if it's even relevant: varsity starter all high school, hitting .464 ba this year so far, pop times through PBR or hs coach consistently 1.9-1.85, exit velo 91, 7.01 60 on grass outfield, 4.23 home to first; he's played with and handled many different styles of pitchers to include top Colorado pitching prospect Cole Winn; local all-conference awards, and area awards; gpa 3.1 right now, SATs waiting on the test he just took...late we know; his high school is 4A (Mountain View HS), but consistently a top performer in the state (conference champs, state placers and championships); his work ethic can be demonstrated and attested to by coaches and various trainers, to include catching instructor Gabe Garrison; He also plays football and is a state top performer as a middle linebacker, garnering accolades and awards...just to point out his athleticism).
