**Please note** - There is a date changes to the NKCA Open House at Dicks Sporting Goods. It is listed in the communication as 2/7. It has been moved to 2/14, with the shop days moving that weekend also from 2/7 and 2/8 to 2/14 and 2/15.
Also, check out the line up of tournaments we have scheduled. There is a bit of a fun twist to our Red White and Boom we feel everyone will ask, 'why did it take so long?'
MLB - Pitch, Hit, and Run is the official skills competition for ages 7 - 14.
Participation is free!, with an opportunity to move through 4 levels of competition (Local, Sectionals, Team Championship, and National Finals). Team Championship will be held at the Royals stadium and Nationals will be held during the week of the All-Star game.
On Saturday, 4/11 from 11am to 2pm, NKCA Baseball will host this competition at the AJ Wilson Sports Complex (92nd and Brighton Ave).
The Pitch - Try to throw strikes like Major League pitchers by taking a shot at hitting the MLB Strike Zone.
The Hit - Swing away from home plate! Just like big leaguers, you'll be judged on distance and accuracy.
The Run - Start at second and head for home to test your speed at running the bases.

The NKCA Baseball League is a private, 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation serving the youth of our community since 1945.
The NKCA Baseball League is now in its 70th year, established in 1945, serving the northland. Today, the league is over 200 teams strong with young athletes from all over the Greater Kansas City Area.
Our programs cover all levels of play, for age groups 6U to 19U, Spring and Fall. Players at 6U have the opportunity to play in TBall, Coach Pitch, or Machine Pitch. At 7U and 8U they move to Machine Pitch. At 9U, we begin kid pitch and continue to develop their talents through high school age.
We provide a great venue for players, playing on age specific fields. For teams, they can count on our league for the best field conditions north of the river, many of the administration functions such as registration and a robust web notification system. Our umpires go through a comprehensive umpire training program that includes classroom and field experience.
Our focus continues to be on the development of local athletes, increasing skills that include sportsmanship and team work.
We look forward to serving the northland youth and their families
