Following the Pitch Hit and Run competition at 1pm we will have opening day Major's games running on Ford and Rooker fields - come watch our majors kick off the season!

The MLB Pitch Hit & Run ages 7 & up will be held on Ford and Blair fields. MINI Pitch Hit & Run ages 6 & under will be held on Rooker Field.
Kids start their competition level at a local competition to advance to Sectionals. If a competitor has enough points at Sectionals they will be selected for Team Championships that are held at Major League Ballparks. Advancements from there go to the National Finals where finalists will be invited to the 2017 MLB All-Star Week!!! For more information click on link here
