A message from the MLB... - Monday, March 16, 2020

Due to the national emergency created by the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, we have decided to cancel high-attendance, youth-focused events and activities through April 2020, including all local and regional Pitch, Hit & Run and Junior Home Run Derby competitions. This decision, which does not come easily, was made in light of recommendations by federal and local authorities to postpone large group gatherings as our nation looks to suppress the spread of this disease.  We will be in communication should there be any opportunity to re-schedule these events.
