The Pitch, Hit & Run program is a national competition sponsored by Major League Baseball in which boys and girls in different age levels compete against each other in hitting for distance, pitching for accuracy and running for time. Athletes with the highest cumulative scores may get the opportunity to compete in the National Finals at the MLB All-Star game.
The next local competition will be held in the spring of 2018 at Valley Creek Park Athletic Complex, 2482 Pioneer Rd. from 9 a.m. to noon. Participants may register at Valley Creek Park the day of the event.
The City of Mesquite congratulates Tyler Little on his recent achievement. Tyler Little advanced from the 2017 Mesquite local Pitch, Hit and Run competition to achieve first place in the Texas Rangers Team Championship with a chance to advance to the national competition this summer.
