The Palm Beach County Sports Commission’s long-standing partnership with Perfect Game will continue to bring tremendous economic impact to the region as it is set to simultaneously host the Perfect Game WWBA World Championship and WWBA Freshman World Championship from October 5-9. These premier events will showcase top-tier amateur players across three incredible venues including Roger Dean Chevrolet Stadium, The Ballpark of the Palm Beaches, and Santaluces Athletic Complex.
The Perfect Game WWBA World Championship and WWBA Freshman World Championship are set to bring over 340 elite travel teams to The Palm Beaches. This impressive lineup will feature over 5,400 talented athletes, nearly 500 coaches, and nearly 3,000 expected spectators. Professional scouts and college recruiters are also expected to attend. Last year's events generated $11.5 million in total economic impact for Palm Beach County.
For over two decades, Roger Dean Chevrolet Stadium has been a cornerstone of baseball excellence, serving as the Spring Training home for the Miami Marlins and St. Louis Cardinals. With a seating capacity of 8,030, including box suites, and advanced facilities, it provides an unparalleled baseball experience. Adjacent to the stadium, 12 full-size baseball fields, four of which are lit for night play, enhance the complex.
The Ballpark of the Palm Beaches, home to the Washington Nationals and Houston Astros during Spring Training, features a fan-friendly 7,700-capacity stadium and 13 MLB fields. This versatile facility accommodates diverse events, from baseball showcases to lacrosse tournaments and more.
Santaluces Athletic Complex, a former Spring Training site for the Montreal Expos, offers four meticulously maintained fields, ideal for Major League-level baseball. The complex's exceptional amenities, including professional batting cage tunnels and a covered seating area, have made it a sought-after venue for prominent events and tournaments.
