EVANSTON — The annual “Pitch, Hit & Run” competition for area youths is slated for Wednesday, April 17, at 1 p.m. at Overthrust Ball Park.
Pitch, Hit & Run is the official skills competition of Major League Baseball. This grassroots program is designed to provide youngsters with an opportunity to compete, free of charge, in a competition that recognizes individual excellence in core baseball/softball skills.
Boys and girls are divided into four age divisions: 7/8, 9/10, 11/12, 13/14, and have the chance to advance through four levels of competition, including team championships at Major League ballparks and the national finals at the 2013 MLB All-Star Game.
The individual pitching, hitting and running champions, along with the all-around champion in each age and gender group at the local competition will be awarded and advance to the sectional level of competition.
All participants must bring a copy of their birth certificate and have their parent or guardian fill out a registration/waiver form prior to the start of the competition.
For questions concerning the competition, contact local coordinator Roni Ottley at the Evanston Recreation Center at (307) 789-1770 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
