Local competitions can take place anytime between March 1 – mid May.  Please visit MLB Pitch Pitch, Hit & Run to sign up to host a competition and assure that your local administrative kit is sent out in the first wave of shipments in January.  Your kit will contain promotional posters, registration forms, award ribbons, participation baseball cards, a “Strike Zone” banner for pitching and other information required to conduct the competition.
