What is Pitch Hit & Run?

Major League Baseball Pitch, Hit & Run (PHR) is a free event that creates a safe and fun environment for kids to stay active and learn or continue to play baseball and softball in their local communities. Participation gives the athletes a chance to compete and earn a spot in a Team Championship and advance to the Finals.

Pitch Hit & Run is for boys and girls ages 7 to 14 years old and consists of a series of movements that are important in baseball and softball. Athletes are tested on their individual skills in each movement earning a cumulative score at the end of the competition. Based on their scores, they can advance from a Local Competition to a Team Championship and then to the Finals, which is held in conjunction with the MLB World Series.

The best part? It’s free! Athletes can participate at no cost. 

Some FAQ'S

How can I host an event?

Who can participate in my event?

Anyone age 7 to 14.

Why should I host a local Pitch, Hit & Run event?

The Major League Baseball Pitch, Hit & Run events are a fun, accessible way to get kids interested in playing baseball and/or softball. Plus, they can be an exciting addition to existing leagues, events and other programs for athletes. Even more, these high-profile events are affiliated with Major League Baseball. The winners of your local event have the opportunity to advance and compete during MLB World Series!

When should the competition be held?

Pitch, Hit & Run local competitions should be held no later than Aug. 1, to qualify for the 2024 Team Championships and Finals. There will be a quick turnaround from the Aug. 1 deadline to the first Team Championship, so we recommend you complete your events earlier in the summer.

You are still able to host Pitch, Hit & Run events after Aug. 1, but the winners from the competition will qualify for the 2025 Team Championships and Finals, and will have to be in compliance with rules for the 2025 season.
