Area youth to compete in Major League Baseball® Pitch Hit & Run™ Competition

Wicomico County Recreation, Parks & Tourism will host a free Major League Baseball® Pitch Hit & Run™ Competition for area youth on April 5 (softball) and April 12 (baseball).

Each event will begin at 6 p.m. at the Henry S. Parker Athletic Complex, located at 711 W. Naylor Mill Road in Salisbury.

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 and 13/14 – and have the chance to advance through four levels of competition, including Team Championships at Major League ballparks and the National Finals during the 2019 MLB™ All-Star Week®. Each participant’s age is determined as of July 17, 2019.

The individual pitching, hitting and running champions and the all-around champion in each division at the local competition will be awarded and advance to the sectional level of competition.

All participants must bring a copy of a valid birth document for age verification and have their parent or guardian fill out a registration/waiver form prior to the start of the competition.
