South Orange Maplewood Baseball : Pitch Hit & Run 2024 (



For those not familiar, Pitch, Hit & Run is a free event that creates a safe and fun environment for kids to stay active and learn or continue to play baseball and softball in their local communities. Participation gives the athletes a chance to compete and earn a spot in a Team Championship or National Finals.

The Pitch, Hit & Run competition is for boys and girls 7-14 years old and consists of a series of movements that are important in baseball and softball. Athletes will be tested, and their measurements will be recorded. Based on their scores, they will advance from a local event to a Team Championship and then to the National Finals. Further details on the event and the drills each participant will run through can be found in the link below to MLB’s website and subsequent YouTube video.
