Pitch, Hit & Run Competition

Magnolia Little League hosts an annual Pitch, Hit & Run Competition following the season opening parade.

Thee years in a row we have had both baseball and softball players make it past the sectional round and participate in the Mariners Pitch, Hit & Run competition at Safeco Field/T-Mobile Park with other top contestants from WA, OR, MT, ID and AK. Let's continue to watch our MLL talent represented at T-Mobile Park!

Major League Baseball Pitch Hit & Run (PHR) is a free event for boys and girls ages in four age groups: 7/8, 9/10, 11/12, 13/14. PHR is the official skills competition of Major League Baseball.  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.

The Pitch
Objective: The PITCH portion of the program will test 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.

The Hit
Objective: The HIT portion of the program will test a competitor's ability to hit from a stationary batting tee, along a tape measure from home plate, toward straight-away centerfield. Hits will be measured for distance and accuracy.

The Run
Objective: The RUN portion of the program will measure 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.
