Pitch Hit & Run is the official skills competition of Major League Baseball. This grassroots program is designed to provide youngsters with an opportunity to compete free of charge, in a competition that recognizes individual excellence in core baseball/softball skills.
Boys and girls will be divided into four age divisions: 7/8, 9/10, 11/12, 13/14, and will have the chance to advance through four levels of competition, including Team Championships at Major League ballparks and the National Finals at the 2016 MLB All-Star Game.
The individual Pitching, Hitting and Running Champions, along with the All-Around Champion in each division age group at the local level will be awarded and advance to the sectional level of competition.
The competition is open to all youth ages 7 to 14 on either April 21 or April 23. All participants must bring a copy of their birth certificate and have a parent or guardian fill out registration paperwork and a waiver prior to the start of the competition.
