Smokies hosting MLB Pitch, Hit & Run competition

The Tennessee Smokies have announced they will host a free Major League Baseball Pitch, Hit & Run Competition at Smokies Stadium in collaboration with Boys & Girls Clubs of the Tennessee Valley on Tuesday, March 14 at 4:00 p.m. Pitch, Hit & Run is the official skills competition of Major League Baseball. This grassroots program is designed to provide Club members with an opportunity to compete, free of charge, in a competition that recognizes individual excellence in core baseball/softball skills. This competition is exclusively for Club members.

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 at the 2017 MLB All-Star Game.

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

For questions concerning the completion, please contact Carlye Clark at (865) 232-1118 or cclark@bgctnv.org.
