MLB Skills Competition

Pitch, Hit & Run

Major League Baseball Pitch Hit & Run (PHR) is a free, 1-day event for boys and girls ages 7-14. PHR is the official skills competition of Major League Baseball and can be hosted by any organization, league, civic group or set of volunteers in the community. An easy to use administrative kit is provided for participants to host this free competition.

Participants compete in either the Baseball Division or Softball Division and have the opportunity to advance through four levels of competition including Locals, Sectionals, Team Championships and the National Finals during MLB All-Star Week.

Each spring, the Miami Marlins host a local competition in the community. In addition, the South Florida Team Championships take place at Marlins Park.
