Bossier Little League hosts Pitch Hit & Run competition
The event will be held at 6 p.m. Friday, April 27, in Field 1 at Clifford Almond Park, 4700 Shed Road in Bossier City.
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 2018 MLP 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 their birth certificate and have their parent or guardian fill out a registration/waiver form prior to the start of the competition.
For more information about the competition, contact local coordinator Travis Hatten at 423- 304-2935, or e-mail Travis_Hatten@schumacherclinical.com.
