Pitch, Hit, and Run

Aquafina Pitch, Hit and RunYou may register your child now at any of our three community centers or the Parks & Recreation main office.  Registrations will also be accepted the day of the event.  This event will be held at Heritage Park Softball Fields on April 23rd at 10:00am.

This is the official skills competition of Major League Baseball and is comprised of 3 parts: The “Pitch” contest allows youth to attempt to throw strikes like MLB pitchers by pitching to hit the MLB Strike Zone.  The “Hit” contest is 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, comes the “Run” portion of the competition.  Competitors start at 2nd base and test their speed running into home plate.

The competition is open to baseball enthusiasts ages 7-14. Participants will have the opportunity to advance through four levels of competition with the final round ending at the National Finals at the 2011 MLB All Star Game.
