MLB Pitch, Hit & Run and Junior Home Run Derby to make a comeback
After a year off, Major League Baseball’s youth baseball skills events are coming back to the Fredericksburg area and ball fields across the nation. Area boys and girls are invited to participate in the free Pitch, Hit & Run and Junior Home Run Derby on Saturday, May 15 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Sunshine Ballpark, 1200 Wicklow Dr., off Fall Hill Avenue in Fredericksburg. Players may come anytime during the day and take part in one or both competitions. COVID precautions will be taken. For Pitch, Hit & Run, players ages 7-14 are divided into four age groups to test their baseball or softball skills. Age group winners may earn the chance to compete at Washington Nationals Park and ultimately at the MLB World Series.
