National Baseball Congress

Presents the 85th NBC World Series

Youth

Pitch, Hit & Run

Scotts Major League Baseball Pitch, Hit & Run competition provides youngsters across the country with an opportunity to participate, free of charge, in an exciting baseball/softball skills competition in the safest atmosphere possible. Pitch, Hit & Run is intended to encourage youth participation and emphasize the “FUN” element of baseball/softball. Pitch, Hit & Run is established in geographic regions surrounding each Major League baseball team market. The regions encompass neighboring states, when necessary, to ensure the availability of the program to all you baseball fans. Youngsters may advance through four levels of competition – Locals, Sectionals, Team Championship, and National Finals.

In 2018, the National Baseball Congress Foundation will be hosting local Pitch, Hit & Run events for the third year in a row. We have partnered with local baseball programs to have these events in the Greater Wichita Area and if you are looking at having one in your town, feel free to contact us!

Leagues & Organizations

As one of the oldest baseball organizations in the world, the National Baseball Congress places a strong focus towards promoting and introducing the game to youth. By collaborating with these organizations, the NBC continues the mission of giving young players an opportunity to learn and grow as recreational players or at a highly competitive level.
