Pitch, Hit & Run is the official skills competition of Major League Baseball. On April 26 at 1 p.m. at Waterworks Park Port Clinton youth baseball and softball will host this free competition. 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 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 at the 2014 MLB All-Star Game.
The individual pitching, hitting and running champions, along with the all-around champion in each age and gender group at the local competition will be awarded and advance to the sectional level of competition.
All participants must bring a copy of their birth certificate and have their parent of guardian fill out a registration/waiver form prior to the start of the competition. For questions concerning the competition, please contact Carolynn Snyder, local coordinator, at 419-357-2678.
