> Boys and girls 7 to 14 are invited to test their skills in throwing, hitting and running on a baseball diamond next Friday, April 25, from 4 - 6 p.m. at Westside Elementary.
Sponsored by Pepsi the Pitch, Hit and Run competition tests boys and girls against their peers in increments of two years each ranging from 7 and 8 to 9 and 10, 11 and 12 and 13 and 14. There will be separate competitions for the girls and the boys.
Registration will open at 3 p.m. on Friday for the free program. Participants do need a birth certificate or baptism certificate (or an approved copy of them) to verify their age. Those scoring the most points in their age groups at the test of hitting off a machine, throwing for accuracy in the pitch category and running the bases most swiftly, go to a sectional competition between May 15 and June 2. Call the Boys and Girls Club at 475-7028 for any more information.
