Pitch Hit & Run provides youngsters across the country an opportunity to participate in an exciting baseball/softball skills competition. This national initiative gives boys and girls, ages 7 - 14, the chance to showcase their pitching, hitting and running abilities. There are two separate divisions of Pitch Hit & Run; baseball and softball. Participants may compete in either division.
Major League Baseball Pitch Hit & Run is intended to encourage youth participation and emphasize the FUN element of baseball/softball. Since there is NO registration fee, everyone has the opportunity to participate.
