WaKeeney-Trego seventh-grader-to-be Brooke Denning is one of 24 national finalists in the 2014 Major League Baseball Pitch, Hit and Run program presented by Scotts.

It is the official youth skills competition for Major League Baseball.

The finalists (12 boys, 12 girls) were announced June 29. Denning will compete at the national finals and participate in activities during MLB All-Star Week at Target Field in Minneapolis, Minn.

Denning, the daughter of Bobby and Renae Denning, was one of three finalists in the 11- to 12-year-old girls' division after winning the regional competition at Kaufmann Stadium in Kansas City, Mo. She is in the division with Madison Hayes of Ooltewah, Tenn. (Braves) and Alyssa Ochoa, Baldwin Park, Calif., (Angels).

Participants advance through four levels of competition, beginning at the local level.

Denning started competition in the WaKeeney Recreation Commission.

All 30 MLB teams hosted championships in their ballparks on weekends from May 31 to June 29.

The top three competitors in each age group nationwide are selected for the finals. The competition is in three parts. Participants hit four balls off a tee, throw six pitches at a target, and are timed running the bases.

The competiton will take place at 2 p.m. July 14 at Target Field, prior to the start of the Gatorade All-Star Workout Day. The competition leading up to this event began in March, when approximately 625,000 youth participated in more than 4,000 competitions.

Denning, whose softball team just finished a 14-0 regular season, will fly out of Denver and spend Sunday, July 13, to Wednesday, July 16, in Minneapolis. The competitors also have the opportunity to shag baseballs during the Home Run Derby at Target Field.
