American Legion releases results of MLB Pitch, Hit & Run

MADISON – Competition officials have released the results of the Major League Baseball or MLB Pitch, Hit & Run contest held on May 18 at Palmer Park.

Madison American Legion, Post 229 sponsored the annual event. Bobby Lee Jr. served as event chair for Madison American Legion.

Age bracket winners were Brody Duvall, baseball, 7/8-year-olds; Jake Emerson, baseball, 9/10-year-olds; Tristan Blalock, baseball, 11/12-year-olds; Cole Spanier, baseball, 13/14-year-olds; and Emma Sterling, softball, 9/10-year-olds.

“Cole Spanier, our 13/14-year-old age group winner, was the repeat winner this year,” Jean Downs said. Downs serves as President of Madison American Legion Auxiliary. “Cole went to the regional competition last year in Alpharetta, Ga.; won that competition; and then went to Atlanta to the MLB World Series to compete. All expenses paid.”

MLB Pitch Hit & Run is the Official Youth Skills Competition of MLB. This free program allows baseball and softball participants the opportunity to advance through three levels of competition culminating at the MLB World Series.

“Members of the Madison American Legion, Post 229 and its Auxiliary are proud to support this program from Major League Baseball. We see this as our way to help promote our Pillar Number 3 of our 4 Pillars of the Legion – Americanism,” Downs said.

“This program allows us to provide a visible presence and demonstrate the giving back facet of our mission in a fun and energetic way. We hope to grow this competition each year to the point where we become an automatic qualifier for our winners,” Downs said.
