Mandatory meeting for baseball

High school students interested in playing baseball in the spring season must attend a mandatory meeting at 8 p.m. Monday in the Moffat County High School gym. Players who have uniforms or equipment from the previous year need to turn it in at the meeting.

Interested in hosting baseball competition?

People or organizations interested in hosting a local competition for the Pepsi Major League Baseball Pitch, Hit and Run, known as PHR, can sign-up at www.mlb.com/phr.

The competition would be held in the spring for youths ages 14 and younger. Competitors would showcase three fundamental baseball skills -- pitching, hitting and running -- and move their way up the four levels of competition with a chance to compete on

the field at the 2007 MLB All-Star game in San Francisco.

PHR is the official skills competition of MLB, and is its 11th year of existence. There are four age groups:

  • 8 and younger
  • 9 and 10 year olds
  • 11 and 12 year olds
  • and 13 and 14 year olds

There are four levels of competition, including local, sectional, team championship and national finals.
