     Pitch, Hit & Run (PHR) invites youth to demonstrate their skills by competing in pitching, hitting and running competitions. PHR participants can advance through four levels of competition, beginning at the local level, which can be hosted by organizations, leagues, or volunteers within a community, and continuing through sectional and team competitions. More than 685,000 youth participated in over 4,000 competitions that took place across North America. For the third year in a row, a nationwide Girls Softball Division was part of the program which allowed girls to compete and advance separately from the boys throughout the competition. All 30 MLB Clubs hosted team championships at their ballparks on weekends from May 26 through June 24.
