MLB Pitch, Hit, and Run Competition - FREE!!!

April 28, 2019 – 01:00 PM

   Major League Baseball (MLB) and the Optimist Club of Miami Lakes will be sponsoring their Second Annual MLB Pitch, Hit and Run Competition at Miami Lakes Optimist Park on Sunday, April 28th at 1:00 PM. The competition is open to boys and girls 7 through 14 years of age. The participant’s age is determined as on July 17, 2019. The four age groups are 7 & 8 year olds; 9 & 10 year olds; 11 & 12 year olds; 13 & 14 year olds with the boys and girls competing separately. No metal spikes are allowed. Each boy and girl will compete in three categories: Pitching, Hitting and Running.  Any participant who competes in more than one local competition shall be disqualified from the 2019 Pitch, Hit and Run. 

   The Pitch portion of the program will test how accurately a competitor can throw strikes to a designated “Strike Zone” Target from a designated distance (35 feet for the girls’ softball division and 45 feet for the boy’s baseball division). Each competitor receives six pitches to hit the designated “Strike Zone” target.  The “Strike Zone” target (17” X 30” banner) reflects a typical MLB standard strike zone.  Any method of underhand/overhand pitching of throwing is accepted. The competitor must have one foot touching the rubber/chalk line when the pitch is released. Each attempt hitting any portion of the “Strike Zone” target is worth 75 points.  If the competitor fails to hit the “Strike Zone” target is his/her six attempts, he/she will receive the minimum score of 50 points. 

    The Hit portion of the program will test a competitor’s ability to hit a baseball from a stationary tee. Along a tape measure from Home plate, toward straight-away centerfield.  Hits will be measured for distance and accuracy.  Each competitor will be allowed three swings in an attempt to hit the ball.  A swing and a miss counts as one attempt (one swing = one attempt).  Only the best attempt, as determined by the administrator, will count toward a competitor’s score.  Scores will be based on distance and accuracy.  If the competitor fails to hit the ball in his/her three attempts, he/she will receive the minimum 50 points.  A competitor will receive the minimum score of 50 points for a hit of less than 50 feet.  

    The Run portion of the program will measure a competitor’s speed in a sprint from second base, around third and across home plate.  The total distance is 120 feet. The competitor will start at second base or indicated start line.  He/She will begin from a standing start, and begin running when the administrator yells GO!  The runner will be timed from the moment he/she leaves second base, touches an anchored third base and crosses home plate.  No sliding is allowed.  The runner must touch all bases for the time to be official.  If a runner misses a base, he/she will receive the minimum score of 50 points and not be given the opportunity to run again.  A competitor will receive the minimum of 50 points for intentionally sliding into home plate.  A competitor will receive the minimum score of 50 points for a time of more than 11 seconds.  

    Thirty Two certificates for each division and placement certificates will be awarded in this local competition.  The certificates will be awarded to the All-Around Champion, Pitching Champion, Hitting Champion and the Running Champion in each of the four age groups.  The All-Around Champion, Pitching Champion, Hitting Champion and the Running Champion in each of the four age groups in both divisions of this local competition will be eligible in the Sectional MLB Pitch, Hit and Run Competition.  The youngsters that have the opportunity to advance to the Team Championships are the 1st Place All-Around Champion in each of the age groups in both divisions.  The All-Around Champions DO NOT automatically advance to the Team Championship.  His/her score must be compared to the other Sectional All-Around Champions in the MLB team market in order to determine the top three (3) scorers in each age group in both divisions at the Team Champions.
