Pitch, Hit and Run Skills Competition

Sunday, May 5

Pitch Hit & Run™ is the official skills competition of Major League Baseball®. This grassroots program is designed to provide a FREE program for boys and girls, ages 7-14, that gives participants the chance to showcase their pitching, hitting and running abilities in an exciting baseball/softball skills competition. PITCH – Participants are tested throwing 6 balls to a designated “Strike Zone” target. Any method of throwing is permitted. HIT – Participants hit 3 balls off a tee for distance and accuracy. RUN – Participants are timed, starting from second base, touching third then touching home plate. • Participants compete in each of the three components and accumulate a total scored using conversion tables.

Boys and girls are divided into four age divisions: 7/8, 9/10, 11/12, 13/14, and have the chance to advance through four levels of competition, including Team Championships at Major League ballparks and the National Finals during the 2019 MLB™ All-Star Week®.
The individual Pitching, Hitting and Running Champions, along with the All-Around Champion in each division age group at the Local Competition will be awarded and advance to the Sectional Level of competition in Madison, AL.
All participants must bring a copy of a valid birth document for age verification and have their parent or guardian fill out a registration/waiver form prior to the start of the competition.
