Chino Player Places at the MLB Pitch, Hit, & Run
Team Championships at Angel Stadium
Kaylee Pitts has some bragging rights. The 12-year-old softball player from Chino Girls Fastpitch league took 3rd place in the Scott’s Major League Baseball Pitch, Hit & Run Team Championship competition at Angel Stadium on June 2.
To make it to this point, she had to win a few other events: On March 24, Kaylee participated in Chino’s local competition after her softball game. She was the hitting and running champion, and tied for the pitching champion. She was also the all-around champion for her age group. From there, she participated in the Sectionals hosted by Chino Hills at Chino Hills Community Park on May 20. That day, she took the “Gold” for her age group, which made her eligible to go on to the Team Championships at Angel Stadium on June 2.
Kaylee will be in the seventh grade at Woodcrest Junior High School. She plays in the Chino Girls Fastpitch, 12 & under division, on the team “All Stars.” Her mother, Monica Pitts, said “I’m so proud of the hard work Kaylee has been putting in. Chino Girls Fastpitch has been her home since she was 6-years-old, and for her to represent the league and the City of Chino at Angel Stadium was a great experience.”
The Pitch, Hit & Run competition is a free event that invites kids to demonstrate their pitching, hitting, and running abilities in baseball and softball, and is the official youth skills competition of Major League Baseball. The City of Chino will host a local competition again in the spring of 2019.
