Pitch, Hit and Run competition at Pasco's San Antonio Baseball Park

The San Antonio Dixie Youth League will hold a free Pitch, Hit and Run competition starting at 9 a.m. March 14 at the San Antonio Baseball Park.

The event is sponsored by Aquafina and Major League Baseball and is for boys and girls ages 7 to 14. All the equipment is provided and winners have the opportunity to move on to other sectional and regional competitions. The coaches present are from the San Antonio Dixie Youth League.

"It's similar to a punt, pass and kick competition," organizer Heiskell Christmas said. "We see who can hit the farthest, throw with the most accuracy and run the bases fastest. We've done punt, pass and kick competitions before, but we thought we might have a better turnout for a baseball type of competition."
