SKILLS COMPETITION

Teams will check-in and go straight to skills competition. Skills Competition will be held at Hitmen Fields at Epperly Park.

The overall objective of the skills competition is to have every player on each team participate and enjoy the social interaction of this tremendous event. No player may enter more than one event. Awards will be presented to the Champion and Runner-up in each age division in each skills competition at the Opening Ceremonies. If a team has more than 12 players, the additional players can participate in either the accuracy throw or base running.

Round the Horn (5 Players) – 5 players from a team will participate in this event. The catcher will throw the ball to the 3rd baseman who will be located on 3rd base, 3rd will throw to the 2nd baseman who will be located on 2nd, 2nd will throw to 1st who will be located on 1st, 1st will throw to the shortstop who will be located on 2nd, then the shortstop will throw the ball home to the catcher. Time starts when the catcher is told to go and ends when the catcher has control of the ball thrown by the shortstop. The ball and clock are live from the start to the finish so all over throws are live. The ball may not be advanced to the next position until the player has caught the ball and touched the base.

Accuracy Throw (3 players) – Three players on each team can participate. Each player will get five (5) throws to hit the target. Plays must throw from behind the mark position on the field.
