Pitch Hit & Run is the official skills competition of Major League Baseball.
Scott’s Major League Baseball Pitch Hit & Run provides youngsters across the country an opportunity to participate in an exciting baseball skills competition. This national initiative gives boys and girls, ages 7 to 14, the chance to showcase their pitching, hitting, and running abilities.
In the Pitch discipline, participants are tested in throwing strikes to a designated strike zone target.
In the Hit discipline, participants hit a ball off a stationary Tee for accuracy and distance.
In the Run discipline, participants are timed starting from second base, touching third, then touching home plate.
