Pitch, Hit & Run
Posted 25 July 2015 - 07:45 AM
For the past three years the league gives me the 90' dimond during our picture/field day and my wife and I run it......We usually get a handful of kids that qualify for the next round to make the hour or so drive to sectionals and from there we have had three kids advance to the MLB stadium level in Oakland...One took first and he had a 1/32 chance of getting picked to be one of the kids at the AllStar game in the outfield shagging balls during the HR derby.

Now, as for the kids in the outfield during the MLB Home Run Derby, every year I watch it I'm thankful no one gets hurt!
To me, it looks like an accident waiting to happen.
Those kids are not used to catching MLB fly balls/pop-ups and it shows.
Then again, maybe that's just me.

The kids in the green shirts are the one there because of this competition, there is a 7/8 year old boy and girl, 9/10,11/12 & 13/14.....The youngest age group is pretty small but these kids are all very talented players who won skill competitions at three levels to get there.
