Area youth are invited to compete in Major League Baseball’s Pitch, Hit & Run Competition in Madison

Saturday April 20th at the Rucker Sports Complex

The Madison Parks Department will host the free Major League Baseball Pitch, Hit & Run Competition for area youth on Saturday April 20th at the Rucker Sports Complex. Registration will start at 9am with the event starting at 10am. This will be the seventh year that PHR has been hosted by the Madison Parks Department.

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 thru four levels of competition. A participant’s age group is determined by their age as of July 17, 2019.

The individual Pitching, Hitting & Running Champions along with the All-Around Champion in each age and gender group at the Local Competition receive a certificate and advance to the Sectional level. Those winners move on to the Team Championships at a Major League ballpark. In 2014, Chloe Ferris of Madison advanced to the team championships in Cincinnati and competed at Great American Ballpark. In 2017, Kennedy Rowlett advanced to the team championships and won her age group at Great American Ball Park.

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. You can also register online at PitchHitRun.com/find and then enter zip code 47250
