The official youth skills competition of Major League Baseball is returning to Shaw Park.
The Winnipeg Goldeyes will host the MLB Pitch, Hit & Run competition this Saturday, May 25 from 12-3 p.m. at Shaw Park.
For ages 7 – 14, the 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 at the 2013 MLB All-Star Game at Citi Field in New York.
The individual pitching, hitting and running champions, along with the all-around champion in each age group at the local competition will be awarded and advance to the section level of competition.
