GARRISON, N.Y. -- Jessica Tudor, an 8-year-old Garrison native, will be competing in the Hit and Run National Softball Contest at Marlins Park Monday, as part of All-Star Week.
The competition is part of Major League Baseball's Play Ball initiative, which encourages young people to play baseball and softball.
Tudor, who will be representing the New York Yankees, was chosen from more than 625,000 kids in 4,600 competitions. She won the right to go at a contest at Yankee Stadium on June 11.
When she's not hitting balls at Yankee Stadium, Tudor pitches and plays shortstop for the Philipstown Mets.
