Pitch Hit and Run is the official skills competition of Major League Baseball. This skills competition is an easy way to promote physical activity, fun and appreciation of the game in your community. To participate, simply register your event on the Pitch, Hit & Run website and the MLB will send along everything required to offer this free activity in your community.
MRPA has been notified by Major League Baseball that they are making changes in this program with the 2020 season. MLB has determined that the PHR program will consist of just 3 levels of competition starting in 2020, eliminating the Sectional level. (this is the level that Tyler Stewart coordinated for MRPA) The reasons for this are multifaceted, but the main goal was to streamline the program. There will be changes with the online registration and results structure.
The MRPA board of directors has voted to discontinue affiliation with the PHR program and Tyler will no longer represent MRPA as a coordinator. We encourage you to continue participating in this program directly through MLB.
