Pitch, Hit & Run (PHR) invites youth to demonstrate their skills by competing in pitching, hitting and running competitions. Scotts, the "Official Lawn Care Company of Major League Baseball," is in its first year sponsoring the grassroots program. 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. All 30 MLB Clubs hosted team championships at their ballparks on weekends from June 1 through June 30. The top three competitors nationwide from each age group (7-­8, 9-­10, 11-­12 and 13-­14) in both baseball and softball divisions advanced to the 2013 Major League Baseball Pitch, Hit & Run presented by Scotts National Finals.

In addition to the Major League Baseball Pitch, Hit & Run presented by Scotts National Finals, the 24 finalists made a special trip to T-Mobile All-Star FanFest, an interactive baseball theme park and the largest baseball fan event in the world. Among its attractions are an exhibit from the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum, batting cages, clinics from Major League legends, free autograph sessions with former Mets, MLB legends and Hall of Famers, memorabilia and much more.
