VC Little Leaguers take part in Pitch, Hit & Run competition at Petco Park
June 05, 2013Colton Paxton of Valley Center won the 7–8 year old division of the 17th annual Pitch, Hit & Run skills competition team championships held at Petco Park.
Paxton took part in the local Valley Center Little League competition and won his division, which advanced him to the sectional finals, where he won his division again. That earned him the chance to compete on a Major League Baseball field in San Diego, and his first-place finish there means he will have a chance to compete in the National Final at the MLB All-Star Game at Citi Field in New York on July 15. Paxton's score will be measured up against the other team finals winners, and if he finishes in the top three, he advances to the National Final.
Another VCLL player, Chantal Fradet, finished third in the 7–8 division at Petco Park.
