JR HOME RUN DERBY
Major League Baseball's Jr. Home Run Derby (Jr. HRD) is a free event for baseball and softball players, to showcase their hitting skills, and potentially earn a spot at the National Finals, which take place during the 2023 MLB All-Star Week. Participants for baseball will compete in either age division, 12U or 14U, and softball will compete in either age division 14U or 16U, with age cut-off set on July 20, 2023.
Approved local events give youth organizations an opportunity to provide a free, fun, and high-quality experience for their participants. Even more, they aim to help the local group markets expand their programs, while building a strong relationship with MLB, MiLB and its partners.
Inclusion and access are always a top priority for us, and we're excited to announce that the program has expanded to include a softball-specific competition in the 14U and 16U age divisions. This includes specific rules and guidelines dedicated to softball and participants in those divisions.
