Pitch, Hit, and Run: Baseball & Softball

Citisports, in conjunction with the Pittsburgh Pirates and Major League Baseball, will host Pitch, Hit, and Run (PHR)—the Official Skills Competition of Major League Baseball.

About the Competition

This local competition will take place on May 4, 2019, from 10:00 a.m. to noon at McGibbney Field in Brookline Memorial Park. This competition is open to children ages 7 to 14.

Pitch, Hit and Run will then continue with the Sectional Competition on Saturday, May 18, 2019—10 a.m. to noon, again at McGibbney Field. Participants in PHR have the opportunity to advance all the way to the National Finals during MLB All-Star Week!

Citiparks’ Roving Art Car will also be at the field with baseball crafts for the kids beginning at noon.

Kick-Off Game

After the competition, teams will begin vying for the Mayor’s Cup Trophy with a kick-off game on Saturday, May 4, 2019, at noon. This season-opening game will feature the Pony AA Teams from Brookline and the 14th Ward. These two teams faced each other at the end of the 2018 Season in the Mayor’s Cup Championship at PNC Park with the 14th Ward coming out on top. This is going to be a great kick-off game for the 2019 Season!
