Registration will begin at 5:30 p.m. and the contest will start at 6 p.m. The competition will be sponsored as part of Cobleskill’s 2013 NCAA Division III Week. The nationwide celebration is being held April 8 to April 14.

The competition is open to boys and girls 7 to 14 as of July 17. A copy of the participant’s birth certificate will be required for verification. The contestants will compete in the following age groups: 7-8, 9-10, 11-12 and 13-14.

This year boys will compete in the Baseball Division while girls will compete in the Softball Division. Additionally, the Pitching, Hitting, Running and All-Around Champions from each age group and gender will qualify for the Sectional Competition at a site and time that will be announced at a later date.

Participants can advance through four levels of competition, beginning at the local level, which can be hosted by organizations, leagues, or volunteers within a community, and continuing through sectional and team competitions. National Finalists will receive an all-expense paid trip to the All-Star Game. Finalists will participate in an array of festivities upon arrival, including a PHR Welcome Reception, MLB Brunch and All-Star FanFest. Finalists will also get to participate in on-field warm-up practices, shagging fly balls during the Home Run Derby and attending the All- Star Game.
