Scott's Pitch, Hit and Run Competition-Free and Open to all ages! Volunteers needed!
20 FEB 2017 | BY TARA STEVENS
The official competition is open to ages 7-14 where local winners are eligible to compete in the regional competition. We want it to be open to all ages so we will be adding age categories so that all of our local players can compete. Ages outside of the 7-14 ages will only be able to compete in our local competition though. We will host this on opening day around 11am on fields 2, 5 and the tee ball field. We will needs lots of volunteers to make this a fun and successful event! Please sign up in the comments if you are able to help (and put which field you would be willing to help with). Here’s a list of jobs that we will need people to sign up for- we will need each of these positions for each field so please put the job and field that you can commit to.
