This is the official skills competition of Major League Baseball and is comprised of 3 parts: The “Pitch” contest allowed youth to attempt to throw strikes like MLB pitchers by pitching to hit the MLB Strike Zone. The “Hit” contest was a chance for competitors to take a swing from home plate and be judged on distance and accuracy just like in MLB.
