Major League Baseball © PITCH, HIT & RUNtm 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 in all levels of competition.
Major League Baseball © PITCH, HIT & RUNtm 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.
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 & RUNtm, and accumulate a total score based on his/her performance.
Major League Baseball® PITCH, HIT & RUNtm 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 scope. 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 in Marlins Park, Miami, FL at the 2017 MLB™ All-Star Game® on July 11.
Each youngster MUST first participate at a local competition. The 1st Place All-Around, Pitching, Hitting and Running Champions in each age and gender group advance to the Sectional competition.
At the Sectional competition, the youngster must be a 1st Place All-Around Champion in his/her age/gender group in order to become eligible to advance to the Team Championship. The Sectional All-Around Champions' scores are compared with the other Sectional Champions' scores in that respective MLB™ team market. The Top 3 participants in each age and gender group advance to the Team Championship. The Sectional Champion does NOT automatically advance to the Team Championship.
After the Team Championships, the All-Around Champions in each age and gender group are ranked nationally by total score. The champions' scores from all 30 team markets are compared and the top scorers in each age and gender group nationwide advance to the National Finals.
All participants must provide a copy of a valid birth certificate for age verification at all levels of competition. Each youngster may participate in only one local competition. Competing in more than one local will result in disqualification of that individual. No metal spikes are allowed during any portion of the competition. Use of metal spikes will result in the minimum score. In the event of a tie for the All-Around Champion, the youngster winning more individual events (Pitching, Hitting or Running), among those involved with the tie, will be named the All-Around Champion. If a tie still exists, the youngster with the higher Hitting score among those involved with the tie, will be named the All-Around Champion. If a tie still exists, the Running scores of those involved with the tie will be used to determine the All-Around Champion. There is no tiebreaker in the individual skill events. In the event of threatening weather conditions, cancellations and rescheduling will be determined by the hosting organization at the competition site.
