April 17, 2013
JOHNS CREEK, Ga. – Think you're a pretty good hurler? Pretty good with a bat, are you? How about running bases?
Johns Creek baseball stars are invited to show their stuff April 20 at the Aquafina Major League Baseball "Pitch, Hit and Run" skills competition at Ocee Park.
The contest is open to all boys and girls from the age of 7 to 14, and is the first step toward competing in the team championship (Major League Ballpark) and national finals (2013 MLB All-Star Game in New York).
Boys and girls compete together in four age groups (7-8, 9-10, 11-12 and 13-14) in three important aspects of baseball: pitching, hitting and running.
The all-around champion, pitching champion, hitting champion and running champion in each age group from each local competition advances to the sectional level. There is no fee.
Registration starts at 9:30 a.m., and the competition runs from 10 a.m. to noon. Participants must bring a copy of the player's birth certificate, and a completed registration/waiver form must be filled out at check-in. For information, contact Johns Creek Recreation and Parks at 678-512-3200.
Ocee Park is located at 10900 Buice Road in Johns Creek.
