A group of 24 kids, ages 7-14, will be participating in the Los Angeles Angels Championship of the 2013 Major League Baseball Pitch, Hit & Run (PHR) program presented by Scotts taking place on Saturday, June 1 at Angel Stadium.
The top three scores in each age and gender group out of all 30 MLB Team Championships will advance to the PHR National Finals held at Citi Field in New York City during MLB All-Star Week.
The program is the “Official Youth Skills Competition of Major League Baseball” with more than 600,000 kids participating across North America in 2013 in girls softball and boys baseball divisions.
Pitch, Hit & Run provides youth with the opportunity to demonstrate their skills and advance through four levels of competition, beginning at the local level.
Over 4,000 local competitions take place each year, hosted by organizations, leagues, or volunteers within a community.
All 30 MLB Clubs are hosting team championships at their ballparks on weekends through June 30th.
This is the 17th year MLB has run a youth skills program.
