Aquafina Pitch Hit & Run Competition

It’s spring….and time for baseball and the Aquafina Pitch Hit & Run competition. Indiana is on a pace to have record participation in 2010. Indiana will be adding a fourth Sectional Round of Play in Ft. Wayne.

Aquafina Pitch Hit & Run is the official skills competition of Major League Baseball for boys and girls ages 7-14. New this year the girls will compete separately in the competition, which features timed base running, pitching accuracy and hitting for distance and accuracy from a batting tee. As of late March about 75 local competitions (over 5000 youth) were scheduled throughout Indiana through the end of May. In late May to early June, the winners from the local competitions will be invited to one of four Sectionals in the state.

Play Ball Indiana serves as the state coordinator for the Aquafina Pitch Hit & Run competition and also coordinates the Indianapolis Sectional, which will be hosted by the Indianapolis Indians at Victory Field on Sat. June 5. The winners from Indianapolis will be eligible to advance to the Regional Team Championship round, which will be hosted by the Chicago Cubs on June 20. The overall top 12 boys and top 12 girls from the 30 Major League Baseball city sites will advance to Anaheim, CA for the Championship Round during the MLB All-Star Break.
