Barnegat Leader

Pitch, Hit, Run Competition at Little League Field May 7

Apr 21, 2017

Children ages 7 to 14 who love playing baseball are welcome to come out to the Barnegat -Waretown Little League field on Sunday, May 7, for a pitch, hit and run derby. There is no registration fee, as the event is sponsored by Scott’s Turf Builder.

Times are: for ages 7-8, 10 a.m.; ages 9-10, 11 a.m.; ages 11-12, noon; and ages 13-14, 1 p.m. There will be first, second and third place trophies for each age division.

In the pitch portion, the objective will test how accurately a competitor can throw strikes to a designated “strike zone” target from a designated distance. The hit portion of the program will test a competitor’s ability to hit from a stationary batting tee, along a tape measure from home plate, toward straight-away centerfield. Hits will be measured for distance and accuracy. The run portion of the program will measure a competitor’s speed in a sprint from the start line, touching third base and touching home plate. All participants will run a total of 120 feet.

Children do not have to registered in the Little League. For more information, all Peter Capro at
