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 and softball skills.
Competitors are divided into four age divisions: 7/8, 9/10, 11/12, 13/14. Participants will have the chance to advance through four levels of competition, including Team Championships at Major League ballparks and the National Finals at the 2012 MLB All-Star Game.
The individual pitching, hitting and running champions, along with the all-around champion in each age group at the local competition will advance to the sectional level of competition.
Each participant must bring a copy of his/her birth certificate and fill out a registration and waiver form prior to the start of the competition. Metal spikes will not be allowed.
