CCDP partners with Elizabethton Parks and Rec to host these events during the last weekend in February each year.
Major League Baseball® Pitch Hit & Run is a free event that provides boys and girls — ages 7 to 14 — an opportunity to showcase their baseball and softball skills, while earning a chance to attend and perform during the MLB® World Series! Athletes are tested, and their measurements are recorded. Based on their scores, they advance from a local event to a Team Championship held in MLB stadiums. Top scores then qualify for an all-expenses-paid trip for two to compete at the National Finals, which is hosted at the World Series.
Major League Baseball’s Jr. Home Run Derby (Jr. HRD) is a free event series for softball and baseball players — ages 12 to 16 — to showcase their hitting skills, compete against their peers and earn a spot at the National Finals, taking place during the 2023 MLB All-Star Week.
