Perfect Game All-American Classic, 2018

Kasey represented Rady Children's Hospital's Peckham Center for Cancer & Blood Disorders during the Perfect Game All-American Baseball Classic that was played at Petco Park, San Diego, in August 2018.

 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 addressed the Petco Park press conference at the player selection announcement in front of local news station cameras and official of Perfect Game and the San Diego Padres baseball organization. 

The highlight was the banquet where Kasey's story was told in a poignent video production made by Perfect Game that lead into her delivering a powerful speech that outlined her journey battling Alveolar Rhabdomyosarcoma cancer.   


Kasey also threw out the first pitch of the game to former Padre pitcher and recent hall-of-fame inductee, Trevor Hoffman. As an honorary team member for the West team, Kasey spent the game in the dugout as the West beat the East 4-2.
