Pitch Hit & Run

The 2018 Scotts® Major League Baseball (MLB) Pitch Hit & Run Local Competition is coming to DuBois on Sunday, May 6th at the City Park at the new Softball Challenger Field and Senior League Baseball Field.  Both baseball and softball divisions will begin at 2:00pm.


Major League Baseball Pitch Hit & Run is a free, 1-day event for boys and girls ages 7-14.  Competitors compete in four age groups: 7/8, 9/10, 11/12, 13/14. Age is determined as of July 17, 2018.


“MLB Pitch Hit & Run is excited to announce the City of DuBois, PA as one of our Local host sites for 2018”, said Kabir Faiz from Major League Baseball Pitch Hit & Run.  “The City will work hard to continue a tradition of providing youngsters in the area an opportunity to showcase their baseball skills in the Official Skills Competition of Major League Baseball. With over 650,000 youngsters competing in the program at the Local level, cities such as DuBois, PA are exemplifying that the next Big League Star could be in your community.”
