In conjunction with Major League Baseball, Rockaway Little League will be hosting Pitch Hit & Run – a FREE 1-day event for boys and girls ages 7-14 on May 18, 2018 , at Ft. Tilden
Participants compete in either the Baseball Division or Softball Division and have the opportunity to advance through four levels of competition including Locals, Sectionals, Team Championships and the National Finals during MLB All-Star Week.
Competitors compete in four age groups:
Age 7/8 July 18, 2009- July 17, 2011
Age 9/10 July 18, 2007- July 17, 2009
Age 11/12 July 18, 2005- July 17, 2007
Age 13/14 July 18, 2003- July 17, 2005
Tests how accurately a competitor can throw strikes to a designated "Strike Zone" target from a designated distance (35 feet for the softball division and 45 feet for the baseball division). Any method of underhand/overhand pitching or throwing is accepted. An attempt hitting ANY portion of the target will be deemed a strike.
Tests a competitor's ability to hit from a stationary batting tee, from home plate, toward straight-away centerfield. Hits will be measured for distance and accuracy.
Measures a competitor's speed in a sprint from the start line, touching third base, and touching home plate. All participants will run a total of 120 feet.
In order to manage this fun event, we are reaching out for volunteers. We need roughly 15 adult volunteers or teens 16+ who are need of service hours.
