Hudson Kiwanis Teams with MLB on Pitch, Hit and Run Contest

Major League Baseball’s Pitch, Hit and Run competition is coming to Hudson this May in an event for children participating in Hudson Kiwanis Baseball.  Pitch, Hit and Run tests multiple aspects of a player’s baseball ability.  Winners of the Hudson Kiwanis event will be entered into a regional competition with the chance to qualify for the finals, which are scheduled to be held during the World Series this fall. 

“This is something new and exciting that should be fun for everyone involved,” explained Dave Rodgers, who is spearheading the event for Hudson Kiwanis Baseball.  “It’s a tremendous opportunity for our kids to test themselves and have a good time in the process.”

Hudson Kiwanis will also be hosting MLB’s Junior Home Run Derby competition.  Both events will be held at Barlow Farm Park and will coincide with the inaugural Gary Gough Classic, which will be a mid-season tournament for Hudson Kiwanis Baseball teams held May 14-16.

“The Gary Gough Classic is developing into a marquee event for the Kiwanis Baseball program,” continued Rodgers.  “It will be a weekend full of outdoor activity for hundreds of families.”

Gary Gough dedicated more than three decades of volunteer services to Hudson Kiwanis Baseball before stepping away after last season and the Kiwanis Club of Hudson is honoring his efforts by naming the event after him.

All Hudson Kiwanis Baseball teams with players ages seven through fourteen will compete in tournaments that are divided by age group.  Registration to play this season is underway at www.hudsonkiwanis.com.
