Boys and girls will be divided into four age divisions — 7-8, 9-10, 11-12, 13-14 — and have the chance to advance through the four levels of competition, including team championships at ML ballparks and the National Finals during the 2017 MLB All-Star Week.

The individual pitching, hitting and running champions, along with the All-Around Champion in each division age group at the local competition will be awarded and advance to the sectional level of competition.

All participants must bring a copy of their birth certificate and have their parent or guardian fill out a registration/waiver form prior to the start of the competition.
