Pitch Hit & Run Competition
The official skills competition of Major League Baseball
Pitch Hit & Run is a FREE single-day event for both boys and girls ages 7-14. Participants compete in either the baseball or softball division and have the opportunity to advance through three levels of competition: Locals, Team Championships, and the Finals during MLB® All-Star Week™. During the competition, participants will show off their abilities in 3 categories:
PITCH - Competitors will show how accurately they can throw strikes to a designated "Strike Zone" target from a designated distance (35 feet for the softball division and 45 feet for the baseball division). Any method of underhand/overhand pitching or throwing is accepted. An attempt hitting ANY portion of the target will be deemed a strike.
HIT - Competitors will show their ability to hit from a stationary batting tee, along a tape measure from home plate, toward straight-away centerfield. Hits will be measured for distance and accuracy.
RUN - Competitors will show off their speed in a sprint from the start line, touching third base, and touching home plate. ALL participants will run a total of 120 feet.
