OARA Holds Competition May 10, 2017

The Oxford Area Recreation Authority (OARA) hosted its first Pitch, Hit and Run competition on April 29 with more than 50 youngsters participating. Young baseball and softball players ages 7 to 14 had opportunities to show their skills pitching at a strike zone target, hitting for distance and accuracy, and running from second base to home.

Pitch, Hit and Run is sponsored nationally by local businesses, Major League Baseball, the Lions Club of Oxford and Lower Oxford Township.

"The competition is free for the kids, but we had a lot of expenses to cover, especially since this was our first time with this event." OARA board member Marcella Peyre-Ferry said. "We would not have been able to afford to do this without our very generous sponsors."

A small crew of volunteers took care of registration, scoring and running the events. OARA board members, as well as Boy Scouts, local coaches, and individuals, spent the day at the park tracking the competition.

Winners at the local level competition were eligible to compete at the sectional level in Leesport on May 7. Winners there moved on to the next level at a Major League Baseball park, with finalists eventually earning their way to All-Star week competition.

Local winners in the Baseball Division included All-Around winner Dalton Carr, who also won the Hit and Run events, and tied for top placing in the Pitch competition with Brady Hill and Nick Logan. Dalton competed in the category for those ages 7 and 8. For the 9- and 10-year-olds, Logan Spano was first in the Hit and Run events and was named All-Around Champion, with Hunter Dietz winning the Pitch competition. In the 11- and 12-year-old section Jesse Palita was the All-Around and Pitch competition winner while Bradley Dietz won the Hit competition and John "Rob" Logan was top in the Run. The 13- and 14-year-old section All Around winner was Connor Booth, who also won the Hit and Run events. The top spot in the Pitch competition was a tie between Aidan Hill and Connor Reilly.

Girls competing in the Softball Division also made a good showing, with many members of the local Diamond Divas taking part in the event. In the 7- and 8-year-old section, Riley Bransfield won all three events and the All Around title. The 9- and 10-year-old section All Around winner was Grace Allen, who also won the Run event, and tied with Liliana Van Zyl and Alexa Logan in Pitch. The 11- and 12-year-old All Around winner was Cecilia Figueroa, who also won the Pitch and Run events while Emma Keiser won in the Pitch event. Courtney Pardoe won all three events and the All Around title in the 13- and 14-year-old division.

"It would be wonderful to see some of our boys and girls win at the next level or maybe go all the way to the Finals," Peyre-Ferry said.

The local winners will be recognized and presented with certificates at the next OARA Board meeting, slated for Thursday, May 18, at 6:30 p.m. at the Oxford Regional Park, 900 Locust St., Oxford.
