The baseball showcase organization, Perfect Game Inc., is leaving the LakePoint Sporting Community project in Bartow County. A showcase organization for many future college and pro baseball players and a regional draw for Bartow County’s LakePoint Sporting Community, has decided to move elsewhere for its tournaments.
The Cedar Rapids, Iowa-based scouting service plans to secure new baseball facilities in Georgia, according to a news release. It’s part of a larger national expansion. Perfect Game will move its tournaments from LakePoint starting in 2020.
The decision comes as investors behind the massive project work to regain its financial footing. In June, eight groups affiliated with the development filed a Chapter 11 reorganization plan in federal bankruptcy court in Atlanta. The restructuring was created with the project’s main investor, California-based hedge fund manager Rimrock Capital.
