(Media release from Rome-Floyd Parks and Recreation):
It’s time for your kids to break out their gloves, bats and shoes and compete in the 2022 edition of the Jr. MLB Pitch, Hit and Run competition. The event is set for Tuesday afternoon July 19 at Etowah Park and will start at 6 p.m.
Girls and boys ages seven to 14 are eligible to participate in the event which scores athletes based on hitting and throwing accuracy as well as speed on the base paths. Local winners will have their scores entered into the state competition with the possibility of advancing to compete at Truist Park later this year.
Last year, a local male and female competitor advanced to the regional competition at Truist Park. The event is put on by Rome-Floyd Parks and Recreation, Matt Larry and Darlington School. For more information, email Jeremiah Blanton at Steven.Blanton@floydcountyga.org.
