Canes face Alabama school to open 5th annual PG High School Showdown at LakePoint


The Cartersville Purple Hurricanes baseball team will participate this weekend in the 5th annual Perfect Game High School Showdown held at LakePoint Sports in Emerson.

The event, which started in Ft. Myers, FL at Jet Blue Park in 2013 moved to the local Georgia location with the Perfect Game organization for the 2015 tournament.

Twenty-five teams will begin play Thursday in the single-elimination championship bracket with some winners playing a second game Thursday night to narrow the title bracket to eight unbeaten teams heading into Friday night’s quarterfinals.

Cartersville (7-1) will open play Thursday evening on Field #12 at 6pm against James Clemens High School (Madison, AL). The winner of that game will advance to a Round of 16 game Friday afternoon at 3:30pm against Providence High School (Jacksonville, FL).

The championship bracket quarterfinals are Friday night at 6pm on four different fields with the semifinals Saturday morning at 10:30am and finals at 1pm on Saturday.

Weather permitting, all teams in the tournament will play four games in either the championship bracket or in consolation games.

Parking for LakePoint events is $5. Baseball game tickets are $5 each day.
