06' Pitch, Hit & Run

Pitch Hit and Run Competition 2006 Maine

The Maine State Competition for Pitch, Hit and Run
was held in Bangor, Maine on Saturday May 27, 2006.

A very large crowd gathered from across Maine to warm up for the big event !
There were 107 participants who traveled to Bangor for the Finals !

Lots of family and friends turned out to root for their favorite competitor.

MLB's Pitch, Hit & Run provides boys and girls, ages 7 to 14,the opportunity to showcase pitching, hitting and running abilities.
Winners can advance through four levels of competition, all the way to the National Finals at the MLB All-Star Game.
The competition is broken into 4 age divisions: 7-8, 9-10, 11-12, 13-14

The Pitch, Hit & Run competition consisted of three different categories:

  • Pitching Accuracy
  • Batting power & accuracy
  • Baserunning speed
Pitching Event:
During this part of the competition each person had the opportunity to throw six balls at a strike zone sized target 45 feet away.
Each hit of the target gave the competitor 75 points towards their final score.
Here are a few of the competitors in the Pitching competition.
As some kids threw fiercely, others waited their turn and enjoyed time with friends.

Hitting Event:
During this part of the competition each competitor had the opportunity at three swings off a tee.
Each competitor attempted to hit the ball as far as they could but also straight down the middle of the field.
After the balls were hit into the field the field judges measured the distance of the hit.
The judges measured the distance the ball landed away from the center of the field
and deducted that measurement from the total distance from the tee.
This gave the final measurement of distance and accuracy.

Running Event:
During this part of the competition each competitor had to start at 2nd Base.
When the judge said go they ran as fast as they could towards 3rd base to round it and head home.
When the competitor stepped on home plate the stop watch was stopped and the time recorded.
The speed of each competitor was converted to a score and added to their final score.
