Memorial Day Pitch, Hit, and Run Competition!

MEMORIAL DAY PITCH, HIT, AND RUN COMPETITION!

This Monday, May 27 (Memorial Day), the Regan Youth League is excited to host a Major League Baseball-sponsored Pitch Hit & Run Competition! It will take place 5:15pm-6:45pm at Daisy Field. It is open to all baseball and softball players ages 7-14. Free to participate!

Kids can arrive and depart any time during the 5:15-6:45pm window. I estimate it will take kids 30 minutes to warm up and then get through the drills.

Parents may register at the event. Or skip the line and register here:

Junior Division coach John Choe ([email protected]) will be the main contact for this event.

For the MLB Pitch Hit & Run Competition, players will hit baseballs/softballs off a tee, run from 2nd to home, and pitch/throw balls at a target. Full program details and also videos of the individual stations can be found here: https://www.mlb.com/pitch-hit-and-run/about

It will be fun to compete. In each age group for both softball and baseball divisions, the Pitching, Hitting, Running, and All-Around Champions will be recognized. These players will have just under a week to continue to practice before they advance to Sectionals on June 1st at 1pm in Canton, MA. This is also a free competition. Winners from Sectionals compete at Fenway Park with a chance to earn a spot to compete at the MLB All-Star Game.

For ages 7-14. There will be four separate age groups. To calculate your age for this competition, use your age on July 17, 2019. The following chart is an age group breakdown for the Major League Baseball Pitch Hit & Run events in 2019:
