Washington County youth are invited to participate in a pitch, hit and run competition sponsored by Aquafina and Major League Baseball. The competition takes place April 18 at Idle Hour Park.

Registration begins at 8 a.m. with competition taking place afterward. Competitors will be divided into four age divisions: 7-8, 9-10, 11-12 and 13-14.

The pitching, hitting and running champions, along with the all-around champion in each age group at the local level, will be awarded and advance to the sectional competition to be held May 16 in Bowling Green, Ky.

Individuals will have the chance to advance through four levels of competition, including team championships at Great American Ball Park in Cincinnati and the national finals at the 2009 MLB All-Star Game in St. Louis, Mo.

All participants must bring a copy of their birth certificate and fill out a registration/waiver form prior to the start of the competition.
