Area youth to compete in Major League Baseball Pitch Hit & Run competition

City of Tiffin Parks and Recreation Department will host a free Major League Baseball Pitch Hit & Run Competition for area youth at 12:30 p.m. April 27 at Oakley Park, 70 6th Avenue, Tiffin.

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.

Boys and girls are divided into four age divisions – 7-8, 9-10, 11-12 and 13-14 – and have the chance to advance through four levels of competition, including Team Championships at Major League ballparks and the National Finals during the 2019 MLB All-Star Week.

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

All participants must bring a copy of a valid birth document for age verification and have their parent or guardian fill out a registration/waiver form prior to the start of the competition. For more information, please contact Mason Correll at mcorrell@tiffinohio.gov or (419)448-5408.
