Bossier Little League to host hit, pitch and run competition for area youth

Bossier Little League is hosting a free Scotts Major League Baseball Pitch Hit & Run competition for area youth Friday at 6 p.m. on Field 1 at Clifford Almond Park.

Pitch Hit & Run 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/softball skills.

Boys and girls 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 2018 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.

All participants must bring a copy of their birth certificate and have their parent or guardian fill out a registration/waiver form prior to the start of the competition.

For questions concerning the competition, please contact local coordinator Travis Hatten at (423) 304-2935.
