2019 MLB Pitch, Hit and Run Competition

Hello All,
Danvers American Little League (DALL) will be hosting a Pitch, Hit and Run competition sponsored by Major League Baseball (MLB). The event will take place at Plains Park on Saturday May 18th at 9:30 AM. It is free to register and winners from each age group will proceed to a sectional on 5/26 at a location to be determined. The winners from each sectional will advance to compete at Fenway Park in late May/Early June. If we are lucky enough to have someone from DALL win at Fenway, they would advance to the National Finals at the MLB All-Star Game this July which is being hosted by the Cleveland Indians at Progressive Field in Cleveland, OH. 


We ask players to meet by the little league batting cages at plains park by 9:30 am to sign in. Players are encouraged to warm up somewhere at the ball park, please no swinging bats near the meeting area.

Players will run, throw and hit at 3 stations. Players will start at one station, once they finish they proceed to the 2nd station and proceed to the final station. Some kids will only take a few minutes, others will take longer but believe it will take under an hour. Players cannot do the stations out of order. 

Players will throw at a target (5 pitches) and receive a score,
Players will then hit 5 balls off a tee and will be scored on the distance and how straight they hit the ball
Players will be timed on a run from second to home. 

We will be utilizing Memorial Field and Brown 2 for this event. Please bring your bat, helmet and water - a glove isn't required but you can use one when you throw. We will take players up until 10:15. Please let us know if you will be late so we can wait!
