Play Ball is all about inspiring everyone to play ball. It's that simple. The program highlights the many ways baseball can be played, including outside of the traditionally organized baseball leagues and tournaments, ranging from playing catch, stickball and Wiffle ball, to participating in skills competitions like Pitch Hit & Run (PHR) & Junior Home Run Derby (JrHRD). PHR and JrHRD are both free and allow participants the opportunity to advance all the way to MLB All-Star Week.
