Rome-Floyd Parks and Recreation will host a free Major League Baseball Pitch Hit & Run Competition for Rome-Floyd County.

Pitch Hit& Run is the official skills competition of Major League Baseball. The 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, 13/14, and have the chance to advance through four levels of competitions, including Team Championships at Major League ballparks and the National Finals during the 2021 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 questions concerning the competition, please contact Jeremiah Blanton at BlantonS@floydcountyga.org.
