Coral Springs Little League Hosts MLB’s Pitch Hit & Run Competition

By Sharon Aron Baron

Come out and participate in the Major League Baseball’s Pitch Hit & Run competition hosted by Coral Springs Little League.

Held on Friday, May 14, this free program allows baseball and softball participants the opportunity to advance through three levels of competition, culminating at the MLB World Series.

First, the PITCH portion of the program tests how accurately a competitor can throw strikes to a designated “Strike Zone” target from a designated distance. Any method of underhand/overhand pitching or throwing is accepted. An attempt hit at ANY portion of the target will be deemed a strike.

Secondly, the HIT portion of the program tests a competitor’s ability to hit from a stationary batting tee, along with a tape measure from home plate, toward straight-away centerfield. Hits will be measured for distance and accuracy.

Lastly, there’s the RUN portion, measuring a competitor’s speed in a sprint from the start line, touching third base, and touching home plate. ALL participants will run a total of 120 feet.

Don’t miss the fun from 6-p.m. – 8 p.m., at Mullins Park.  Open to everyone. Register at Home of Major League Baseball’s Pitch Hit & Run program.
