Congratulations to all of the youngsters that participated in this year's Pepsi Pitch, Hit & Run Local Competition held at the Forest Hills Little League Fleet Street Fields on May 1st, 2005. The All-Around Champion, Pitching Champion, Hitting Champion and Running Champion in each age group (see results above) from our Local Competition will advance to the SECTIONAL Competition held on Sunday, May 29th @ 1:00PM on Field #5 FDR Drive (corner of FDR Drive & Houston Street) in Manhattan. Click here for directions. At the Sectional, the youngster must be a 1st Place All-Around Champion in his/her age group in order to qualify to advance to the TEAM CHAMPIONSHIP. The Sectional All-Around Champions' scores are compared with the other Sectional Champions' scores in that respective MLB team market. The Top 4 participants in each age group advance to the TEAM CHAMPIONSHIP held during June in all 30 Major League Baseball markets. The Sectional Champion does NOT automatically advance to the Team Championship. After the Team Championships, the All-Around Champions in each age group are ranked nationally by total score. The champions' scores from all 30 team markets are compared and the Top 4 in each age group nationwide advance to the National Finals in Detroit, MI. The National Finals are held during Major League Baseball’s All-Star Week, the 16 Finalists (four in each age group) will compete in the 2005 All-Star festivities at Detroit's Comerica Park as exclusive guests of Major League Baseball. The Forest Hills Little League would like to extend a special thanks to Jon LaMountain, Dawn Brito and all the parent volunteers for giving our youngsters the chance to showcase their talent during this special event and for giving them the opportunity to represent our league in the Sectional Competitions and beyond. Good Luck Champions! Pepsi PITCH, HIT & RUN (TM) provides youngsters across the country an opportunity to participate in an exciting baseball skills competition. This national initiative gives boys and girls, ages 7-14, the chance to showcase their pitching, hitting and running abilities. PITCH, HIT & RUN is intended to encourage youth participation and emphasize the “FUN” element of baseball. Since there is NO registration fee, everyone has the opportunity to participate.image

A limited amount of tickets have been made available to us at a discount price of $12.00 and are being sold on a first come, first serve basis. All players attending the game will be allowed on the outfield warning track (see instructions below) during the playing of the National Anthem. If you would like to purchase tickets, please click here to download and print an order form as soon as possible. Remember, there are only a limited amount of tickets available. All tickets purchased for the Mets game will be distributed at the Fleet Street Fields to each little league team during the game starting the week of May 2nd. A league official will come to each game and give the tickets to the parents or their manager/coach. Please contact a league official or your team manager if you were unable to receive your tickets during the week of May 2nd. WARNING TRACK INSTRUCTIONS: To make this event enjoyable and present our FH Little League in a professional manner, players and coaches lining up on the warning track for the National Anthem are asked to follow the following instructions. Please arrive at the ballpark in uniform tops and hats no later than 12:10PM. Allow ample time (20+ minutes) for stadium traffic and parking. Enter though GATE E with your game ticket and proceed to the right hand side of the lobby. A Mets Group Sales Department employee will direct you to the staging area where the group will be organized according to their team, coaches will assist in this process. Once assembled into two lines, the group will be escorted to the area behind centerfield. At this point and for security reasons, we ask that the non-uniform members of the group proceed to their ticketed seats to view the event. Approximately five minutes prior to the anthem, the group will be lead by the Mets staff onto the warning track. The Mets staff ask that all participants avoid walking on the grass or touching the outfield wall. Hats should be removed upon the PA announcer's instruction. When the anthem has concluded, the group will be guided off the field and directed to the stadium lobby where they may proceed to their ticketed seats. Very truly yours, Presidentimage
