The Lubbock Boys & Girls Club will host a free Aquafina Major League Baseball Pitch, Hit & Run Competition for area youth. The event is on Saturday, April 28th and begins at 9 a.m. and will be held at the Lubbock Christian University Intramural Field located at 26th and Dover.

Pitch, Hit & Run is the Official Skills Competition of Major 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.

Competitors 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 2012 MLB All-Star Game.

The individual Pitching, Hitting and Running Champions, along with the All-Around Champion in each age group at the Local Competition will be awarded and advance to the Sectional Level of Competition.

All participants must bring a copy of their birth certificate and fill out a registration/waiver form prior to the start of the competition. For questions concerning the competition, please contact Tom Vermillion at the Lubbock Boys & Girls Club Administrative Office 806-792-2880 or email at tvermillion@lubbockbgc.org.
