OVERVIEW

Scotts® Major League Baseball® 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. Boys and girls compete separately at all levels of competition.

PITCH, HIT & RUN™ is intended to encourage youth participation and emphasize the "FUN" element of baseball. Since there is NO registration fee, everyone can participate. PITCH, HIT & RUN™ tests three of the most fundamental aspects of baseball - pitching, hitting, and running.

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

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

RUN: Time run starting from second base, touching third, then home.

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

Participants will compete in each of the three components of PITCH, HIT & RUN™, and accumulate a total score based on his/her performance.

 

LEVELS OF COMPETITION

PITCH, HIT & RUN™ is a national grassroots program that has four levels of competition - Local, Sectional, Team Championship and National Finals. The first level is of a LOCAL competition. Everyone must participate in a local competition in order to advance to the higher levels. Champions at the local level advance to SECTIONAL Competitions. At this level, the Sectional All-Around Champions become eligible to advance to the TEAM CHAMPIONSHIPS, which are held during June in all 30 Major League Baseball® markets. The culmination occurs at the NATIONAL FINALS, held at the 2018 MLB® All- Star Game®.
