FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

BASEBALL PROSPECTUS, PERFECT GAME ALIGN FORCES

Two Industry Leaders Partner To
Provide Unrivaled Baseball Coverage

NASHVILLE, December 5, 2012 – Baseball Prospectus and Perfect Game have agreed upon a partnership to help promote and cover the game of baseball at both the amateur and professional levels. As part of this collaboration, Baseball Prospectus and Perfect Game are intent on using each other's strengths to complement their original baseball content.

Baseball Prospectus' increased focus on the amateur level of the game, to go along with its expert analysis of professional baseball, created a natural opportunity to align with Perfect Game. Perfect Game is recognized as the industry leader in producing Showcase and Tournament events as the largest independent baseball scouting service. Baseball Prospectus will have an increased presence at select Perfect Game events as it did at the 2012 WWBA World Championship in Jupiter, Fla.

As part of this partnership you will start to see more original content being shared on both sites, with Baseball Prospectus and Perfect Game personalities taking part in online chats on both platforms. In addition, Perfect Game will make appearances on Baseball Prospectus Podcasts.

Some of the original Baseball Prospectus content you will find on Perfect Game's site includes the organizational top 10 minor league prospect lists. Baseball Prospectus will share numerous Perfect Game top prospect lists, including those covering high school, college and the draft.

“We're excited about this partnership and I personally have been a fan of Baseball Prospectus for a long time,” Perfect Game President Jerry Ford said. “I believe it's a perfect match given the audiences we reach.”

“We couldn't be happier to work with Jerry (Ford) and Perfect Game,” added Joe Hamrahi, President of Baseball Prospectus. “Perfect Game has been the leader in amateur showcase and tournament scouting development for as long as we can remember. BP and PG are a perfect fit.”
