Metro Parks to host free, Pitch, Hit and Run Competition
Monday April 5, 2010
The home of the Louisville Slugger might produce the next Major League Baseball superstar this spring through two competitions hosted by Metro Parks.
Metro Parks Athletics is hosting a free Aquafina Major League Baseball Pitch, Hit and Run Competition for area youth at Wyandotte Park on Saturday, April 17, and Seneca Park on Saturday, April 24, from noon to 4 p.m.
This grassroots program is designed to provide area youth with an opportunity to compete, free of charge, in a skills contest that recognizes individual excellence. Boys and girls ages 7-14 will have the opportunity to showcase their core baseball and softball skills.
Participants have the chance to advance through four levels of competition, including team championships hosted at major league ballparks, and the 2010 Pitch, Hit and Run National Finals hosted during Major League Baseball's All-Star Week in Anaheim, CA. at a date to be determined.
All participants must bring a copy of their birth certificate and fill out a registration/waiver form prior to the start of the competition. Contestants will be able to register onsite prior to the event.
