AREA YOUTH INVITED TO MAJOR LEAGUE BASEBALL PITCH, HIT AND RUN COMPETITION 

The town of Taos Community Events, Taos Youth & Family Center, Taos Little League and Taos Men’s Adult Baseball League (MABL) will host a free Major League Baseball Pitch, Hit and Run Competition for area youth on Saturday, April 27, starting at 11 a.m. at Taos Little League Field at Kit Carson Park. The competition is free and open to boys and girls ages 7-14. Parents, bring a copy of our child’s birth certificate or religious document to show proof of age. 

Pitch, Hit and 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 during the 2019 MLB All-Star Week. Age is determined as of July 17, 2019. 

The individual pitching, hitting and running champions, along with the all-around champion in each division, will be awarded and advanced to the sectional level of competition. Registration forms will be available at the competition or in advance, at Taos Youth & Family Center. For questions concerning the competition, contact Judy Esquibel at (575) 751-2037 or jesquibel@taosgov.com.
