Beginning in 2022, Perfect Game will manage all aspects of the Complex, including operations, scheduling, maintenance, merchandising and concessions, under the supervision of Perfect Game Region Tournament Director, Jeff Hall and current C35 Sports Complex General Manager and former UNC baseball player, Adam Pate.

Formerly known as the Eastern Carolina Athletic Park (ECAP), the C35 Sports Complex will be used by Perfect Game to host more than 36 regional baseball and softball events annually.  This new hub of regional activity will launch this October 15-17, 2021, when Perfect Game brings its popular 9-13U Coastal World Series to the Complex. 

Beginning in 2022, Perfect Game anticipates hosting, at a minimum, two AA/Minor events and one major event in both baseball and fast pitch softball at the Complex per month.

"Perfect Game is excited to be joining forces with Rob Wooten, by pairing his passion and love for the games of baseball and softball with Perfect Game's commitment to providing best-in-class services to youth baseball and softball players and their families," said Ford.  "We look forward to working with Rob to enhance the C35 Sports Complex's reputation as a state-of-the-art amateur sport and recreation facility."

"I'm confident that Perfect Game is the perfect partner to help raise the visibility and participation levels of our C35 Sports Complex," said Wooten, CO-Owner of C35SC along with his brother Elliott Barnes. "C35 Sports Complex is committed to helping young people fall in love with the great games of baseball and softball, and this partnership with Perfect Game is sure to help us reach more of them.  Together, we will do our part to help grow the games, and help future generations learn the important life skills that can be acquired on the diamond."

"The C35 Sports Complex is sure to become another jewel in the Perfect Game crown of one-of-a-kind baseball and softball complexes across the country that we select to host our events," added Hall. "Beginning this October, young Perfect Game athletes and their families will enjoy their time at the C35 Sports Complex, and they will leave with an unforgettable baseball experience and enough memories and friendships to last a lifetime."
