Pitch Hit & Run provides youngsters (age 7-14) across the country an opportunity to participate in an exciting baseball/softball skills competition. This national initiative gives boys and girls, 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.

Major League Baseball Pitch Hit & Run tests three of the most fundamental aspects of baseball/softball -- pitching,hitting and running.

PITCH: Participant is tested throwing strikes to a designated Strike Zone target.

HIT: Participant hits a ball off a stationary tee for distance and accuracy.

RUN: Participant is timed, starting from second base, touching third then touching home plate.

All of the events are individually scored and converted to a total point score through the use of conversion tables.
