PHR Registration

Pitch Hit & Run™ will take place April 19th at the Bakersfield Complex immediately following the All Star Tryout and is the official skills competition of Major League Baseball®. This grassroots program is designed to provide youngsters with an opportunity to compete, free of charge, in a competition that recognizes individual excellence in core baseball skills.

Boys are divided into four age divisions: 7/8, 9/10, 11/12, 13/14, and have the chance to advance through four levels of competition, including Team Championships at Major League ballparks and the National Finals during the 2017 MLB™ All-Star Week®.

The individual Pitching, Hitting and Running Champions, along with the All-Around Champion in each division age group at the Local Competition will be awarded and advance to the Sectional Level of Competition.

The Pitch

Objective: 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 softball division and 45 feet for the baseball division). Any method of underhand/overhand pitching or throwing is accepted. An attempt hitting ANY portion of the target will be deemed a strike.

  • Each competitor receives six (6) attempts to hit the designated "Strike Zone".
  • Competitors in the baseball division pitch/throw from 45 feet away.
  • All participants in the baseball division compete with a standard baseball.
  • The "Strike Zone" target (17" x 30" banner) reflects a standard MLB strike zone.
  • It is recommended that the "Strike Zone" target be adhered to a backstop/fence or net with the provided Cable Ties. The bottom of the "Strike Zone" target should measure 20 inches from the ground for all competitors.
  • The competitor must start from the pitching rubber or chalk line and deliver each ball to the "Strike Zone" target. Treat the rubber/chalk line just as you would a pitching rubber in a real game.
  • Each attempt hitting ANY portion of the "Strike Zone" target is worth 75 points.

The Hit

Objective: The HIT portion of the program will test a competitor's ability to hit from a stationary batting 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 (3) swings in an attempt to hit the ball.
  • Only the best of the three (3) attempts, as determined by the administrator, will count toward a competitor's score.
  • A swing and a miss counts as one attempt (one swing = one attempt).
  • A running or walking start is not permitted. Participant may take a single stride step, but cannot take multiple steps in attempt to hit the ball from a walking or running start.
  • All participants in the baseball division compete with a standard baseball.

The Run

Objective: The RUN portion of the program will measure 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.

IMPORTANT:

The most important thing to remember is that for competition consistency, all competitors complete one turn at third base, and must run the correct total distance (120 feet for ALL). The program standard for the distance between bases will be 60 feet.

Adjusting Base Paths: Youth fields with base paths that are longer or shorter than 60 feet can easily be adjusted to be in compliance by moving the start line. For example, if the bases are 50 feet in distance, then the runner must start 20 feet behind second base toward right-center field, and then can run a straight line to third base and continue to home plate (70+50=120 feet). If the bases are 80 feet apart, then the runner starts 40 feet in front of second base, towards third base, and runs the regular route to home plate (40+80=120 feet). ALL participants will run a total of 120 feet.

  • The competitor will start at second base or the indicated start line.
  • He 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 touches home plate. No sliding is allowed.
