Davenport and Bettendorf Parks and Recreation Departments will host a free Aquafina Major League Baseball Pitch, Hit & Run competition for area youth on April 9th, from 9:30 a.m. - 1:30 p.m. at Crow Creek Park in Bettendorf.
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. Competitors 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 2011 MLB All-Star Game.
The individual pitching, hitting and running Champions, along with the All-Around Champion in each 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 fill out a registration/waiver form prior to the start of the competition.
