LakePoint Sporting Community opens its baseball facility for tenant Perfect Game to host its annual 16U, 17U and 18U Perfect GameEast Cobb Invitational today.

Four of the 16 Major League-sized fields will have some of the top players in the country competing for the championship. First pitch is at 8 a.m.

LakePoint’s baseball facilities include 16 Major League-sized fields, which — with the exception of traditional dirt pitching mounds — will be surfaced entirely with synthetic turf provided by Shaw Sports Turf. This high-tech playing surface has been designed to accurately mimic the bounce of the ball off real dirt and grass, and will allow fields to be playable immediately after rain.

Each field will be equipped with chairback seats, batting cages and bullpens. Other state-of-the-art features include fully digital scoreboards and LED field lighting.

Scouts and recruiters will be able to view each field from state-of-the-art scouting towers, located at the center of each quad. The scouting towers feature live video feeds from every baseball field at LakePoint so pro and college scouts will not miss a single pitch.

Bartow County and the city of Emerson will become the unparalleled sports destination in the world with the development of LakePoint Sporting Community. The development will include 1,400-plus acres, which will feature state-of-the-art venues for over 40 of America’s favorite youth sports and 5 million square feet of mixed-use development. Along with sports, LakePoint will include approximately 29 on-site hotels, restaurants, retail shops, office space and several other entertainment venues.
