‘Round The Horn’ Skilz Competition – 5 Players
Five players from each team will be allowed to participate.
The participants will take the positions of (1B, 2B, 3B, SS, C)
The goal is to complete a sequence of throws in the infield as fast as possible.
The catcher will start the time by throwing it to 3B, 3B will then throw to 2B, 2B to SS, SS to 1B, and 1B back to the catcher to stop time.
Time will not stop for any reason, and the throws must be completed in this order.
Each team will be allotted one trial run before having their official time recorded.
Team Relay – 4 Players
Each team will be allowed to have 4 players participate.
The positions in this event will consist of the (CF, SS, 2B, C)
The baseball will be placed 20 yards behind the CF.
On the whistle the CF will sprint to the ball and throw it to the first cut-off man, the SS. The SS then has the option to throw it to 2B for a double cut home, or take a long shot to the Catcher in hopes to reduce time.
Time will stop when the catcher has possession of the ball.
The Exit/Pull Down Velo Competition – 5 players
Each player participating in this event will take 3 swings, and throw 3 pull downs. Each swing/throw will be recorded. Each player will be allowed one warm up swing/throw. (There will be space on the field to play catch to warm up to throw, as well as stretch)
The winner will be determined by which player’s pull down velo average, and exit velo average equals to be the highest sum.
Example: Exit Velo Scores- 73, 75, 71 = 73 Pull Down Velo Scores- 63, 65, 66 = 64.7
The players score would then be 137.7.
This event will take place on Memorial Field, located on the 4-Plex at Capitol Federal Sports Complex.
