Pitch, Hit, Run Competition

New this year! Join Pittsburg Parks & Recreation and JL Hutch for this fun and FREE event on Saturday, May 1, 2021.

How it works: There will be three (3) stations where players will demonstrate their skills while pitching, hitting, and running.  They will be assessed a score based on how many strikes they throw, how far they hit a ball, and how fast they are.  Champions for Baseball and Softball will be named for each age division who then may be eligible to move on to the next round.  The next round will take place up at the Kansas City Royal’s stadium.  If the participants win that round then they could go on to the finals and win a trip for two (2) to Major League Baseball All Star Weekend!

Age Division for Baseball and Softball: 7-8, 9-10, 11-12, 13-14
