Pitch, Hit & Run gives youngsters chance at spotlight


By Ward Davis, Athletic Activities Assistant

PHR LogoMy two favorite words in the English language are Opening Day.

Those words are synonymous with the start of baseball season. When I was growing up, opening day was treated as a holiday in my house and like most kids, I dreamed of playing in the big leagues.

Thanks to the Major League Pitch, Hit and Run Competition, local youngsters will have a chance to live their dreams. Presented by Scotts, the competition gives boys and girls ages 7-14 the opportunity to display their core baseball and softball skills.

The free event will be Wednesday, April 6 at Brian Bachmann Community Park. On-site registration begins at 5:45 p.m. and the competition starts at 6:30. Participants need to bring their birth certificates and a parent or guardian to fill out the registration form.

The kids will compete in pitching, hitting and running drills and have the chance to advance through four levels of competition. The final two levels are the Team Championships at various Major League ballparks and the National Finals at the MLB All-Star Game in San Diego.

So come out to the ballpark to show off your skills. You could end up an all-star!
