Two local athletes go far in Pitch, Hit & Run

(L-R) Zach Isaacman and Reece Dixon at PETCO Park.

On Saturday, June 30, two local baseball players, Zach Isaacman and Reece Dixon, placed first and second respectively in their age groups in Major League Baseball's regional Pitch, Hit & Run Team Competition held at PETCO Park. Both players had advanced to the Team Competition by virtue of placing first in their respective age groups in both the Local and Sectional competitions held in May at Ashley Falls Park.

By virtue of his first place finish in the 13/14 year-old age group, Zach now becomes a qualifier for the national Pitch, Hit & Run competition which will take place in Washington DC during MLB's All-Star week in July. Congratulations to both Zach and Reece for representing this area so well throughout the multi-stage competition.
