Pitch, Hit & Run is a grassroots program designed to provide youngsters with an opportunity to compete, free of charge, in a competition that recognizes individual excellence in core baseball/softball skills.

Winners from the local competition will advance to the sectionals on Sunday, June 4 in Old Orchard Beach.
