(From Rome-Floyd Parks and Recreation):
Rome-Floyd Parks and Recreation has announced that the ’22 edition of the Jr. MLB Pitch, Hit and Run competition which had been set for Tuesday has been postponed due to weather until this Thursday at 6 pm at Etowah Park.
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.
