Major League Baseball’s Pitch, Hit & Run coming to Bryan
Major League Baseball Properties’ official youth skills competition – the Aquafina Major League Baseball Pitch, Hit & Run is coming to the Bryan Regional Athletic Complex (5440 N. Texas Ave.) on Saturday, April 28 at 10:00 a.m.
The free event in Bryan is one of 4,000 competitions planned to take place across North America. For a third year, a nationwide Girls Softball Division will be part of the program which allows girls to compete and advance separately from the boys throughout the competition, including the National Finals.
Boys and girls compete in four age groups (7 & 8 year olds, 9 & 10 year olds, 11 & 12 year olds, and 13 & 14 year olds)
Pitch, Hit & Run (PHR) invites youth to demonstrate their skills, competing in pitching, hitting and running abilities. PHR participants can advance through four levels of competition, beginning at the local level, and continuing through sectional and team competitions. All 30 MLB Clubs will host team championships at their ballparks on weekends from May 26 through June 24. The top competitors nationwide from each age group will advance to the 2012 Aquafina Major League Baseball Pitch, Hit & Run National Finals during MLB All-Star Week in Kansas City, MO.
This is the 16th year MLB has run a youth skills program. Information regarding dates, times and locations of other competitions as well as entry forms and other materials for the 2012 Aquafina Major League Baseball Pitch, Hit & Run initiative are available online at http://www.MLB.com/PHR
