The MLB Pitch, Hit and Run competition produced Coby Melkin (7-8), Ari Levisohn (9-10), Binyomin Edelstein (11-12) and Adina Wakschlag (13-14) as overall winners in their age divisions.

Also, Melkin won both the run and hit parts of the competition in his age group. Levisohn also won twice in his group (run and pitch), but Gil Melkin took the hit division.

Edelstein took the run and hit parts of his division with Yoni Jaffe grabbing the pitch competition. Wakschlag won all three parts in the 13-14 division.
