Pitch, Hit, and Run Winners Advance

 

The annual local Pitch, Hit, and Run Competition was held April 17th at Heritage Park Softball Fields. 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. After pitching and hitting, came the “Run” portion of the competition. Competitors started at 2nd base and tested their speed running into home plate.
