Pitch, Hit & Run
PITCH, HIT & RUN is intended to encourage youth participation and emphasize the “FUN” element of baseball competition. Since there is no registration fee for this program, every boy and girl will have a chance to compete. Participants will compete in three important aspects of baseball: pitching, hitting & running.
The four age groups are: 7-8, 9-10, 11-12, and 13-14 with boys and girls competing together (age is determined as of July 17, 2016).
Youngsters may advance through four levels of competition – Local, Sectional, Team Championship (Major League Ballpark) and National Finals (2008 MLB All-Star Game).
- The competition is free for all participants.
- All boys and girls, ages 7-14, are welcome to participate.
- All participants must provide a copy of a valid birth certificate or baptismal record for age for verification when asked. Failure to provide proof of age may result in disqualification.
- All participants must sign a registration/waiver form.
Pitch – The PITCH portion of the program will test how accurately a competitor can throw strikes from 45 feet to a designated “Strike Zone” target.
Hit – The HIT portion of the program will test a competitor’s ability to hit a baseball from a stationary tee, along a tape measure from home plate, toward straight-away centerfield. Hits will be measured for distance and accuracy.
Run – The RUN portion of the program will measure a competitor’s speed in a sprint from second base, around third, and across home plate.
