Published 7:00pm Saturday, March 22, 2014

Hartselle Parks & Recreation Department will host a free Major League Baseball Pitch, Hit and Run Competition at Pickens Field on Railroad Street April 11 and 15 from 5 to 7 p.m.

Pitch, Hit and Run is the official skills competition of Mayor 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 through four levels of competition, including team championships at major league ballparks and the national finals at the 2014 MLB All-Star Game.

The individual pitching, hitting and running champions, along with the all-around champion in each age and gender group at the local competition will be awarded and advance to the section level of competition.

All participants must bring a copy of their birth certificate and have their parent or guardian fill out a registration form prior to the start of the competition. For more information, contact the Hartselle P&R office at 256-773-2581.
