P.A. hosts Hit, Pitch & Run event

The Port Angeles Recreation Department hosts the 2011 Aquafina Pitch, Hit & Run Skills Competition, slated for noon Sunday, April 17, at Volunteer Field in Port Angeles.


The Pitch, Hit, & Run program is a baseball/softball skills competition for youths 7-14 (age as of July 17).


Each participant throws six pitches at a strike zone target, does a timed run from second base to home plate and finally hits the ball off a tee for distance. Metal cleats are not allowed for the competition.


There is no charge to participate and winners advance to the sectional competition.


From there, winners have the chance to move on to the team championship at Safeco Field, then the national finals at the Major League All-Star game.


Participants are asked to bring copies of their birth certificates.


Boys compete at noon; girls compete at 2 p.m.
