As part of Kasey's involvement with Perfect Game All-American Baseball Classic, she addressed a crowd of around 500 at the pictureesque Bayfront Hilton outside banquet location in downtown San Diego.
The speech is embedded below and includes the Perfect Game video production and interviews of Kasey's journey battling cancer.
The Perfect Game All-American Baseball Classic has supported the Rady Children’s Hospital Peckham Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders since 2006 and has raised over $1M. The Peckham Center helped save Kasey's life as she battled Alveolar Rhabdomyosarcoma Cancer in 2014/15.
The Perfect Game selects the best high-school baseball players in the United States and Territories for a West v. East game each year. All players have committed to colleges and many players go on to play professionally with Major League Baseball teams.
The highlight is that each player is taught about "giving back" to local communities and each raise money for Rady Children's Hospital's Peckham Center for Cancer & Blood Disorders...the facility that helped save Kasey's life in 2015. Perfect Game players have raised over $1M for the center since 2006 and this year raised $60,000! Kasey assisted in guiding the players around the Peckham Center where they interacted with the young patients, putting huge smiles on their faces as they battle adversity.
Kasey spoke at the banquet, addressed the player announcement news conference at Petco Park, threw out first pitch to former Padre pitcher, Trevor Hoffman on game day and was an honorary player in the West squad dugout on match day.
