Pitch Hit & Run provides youngsters across the country an opportunity to participate in an exciting baseball/softball skills competition. This national initiative gives boys and girls, ages 7 - 14, the chance to showcase their pitching, hitting and running abilities. There are two separate divisions of Pitch Hit & Run; baseball and softball. Participants may compete in either division.
Major League Baseball Pitch Hit & Run is intended to encourage youth participation and emphasize the FUN element of baseball/softball. Since there is NO registration fee, everyone has the opportunity to participate.
Major League Baseball Pitch Hit & Run tests three of the most fundamental aspects of baseball/softball -- pitching,hitting and running.
PITCH: Participant is tested throwing strikes to a designated Strike Zone target.
HIT: Participant hits a ball off a stationary tee for distance and accuracy.
RUN: Participant is timed, starting from second base, touching third then touching home plate.
All of the events are individually scored and converted to a total point score through the use of conversion tables.
Participants will compete in each of the three components of Major League Baseball Pitch Hit & Run and accumulate a total score based on his/her performance. More information can be found at https://www.mlb.com/pitch-hit-and-run/about
