Johns Creek youngsters can challenge their baseball or softball skills Saturday, April 30 at the Major League Baseball (MLB) Pitch, Hit & Run competition at Ocee Park
The free contest is open to all boys and girls 7 to 14 years-old. Champions in each category and age group from the local competition advance to the Sectional. Those winners advance to a regional competition at a Major League Ballpark, and then to the National Finals at the 2016 MLB All-Star Game.
Boys and girls compete separately in four age groups (7-8, 9-10, 11-12, and 13-14) in three important aspects of baseball: pitching, hitting and running bases.
Registration starts at the event at 1:30 p.m., and the competition runs from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. Participants must bring a copy of the player's birth certificate, and a completed registration/waiver form must be filled out at check-in. For more information, please contact Johns Creek Recreation & Parks at 678-512-3200
Ocee Park is located at 10900 Buice Road
