simple shell question

I have files in the following format.
hits0114.txt   (0114 means January 14).
hits0115.txt
hits0116.txt

and so on.

inside each file I have two columns, like this

  94125 0
   8063 -1
  41548 10
   5182 4
  29374 7
   2913 8
   3373 9


How would I concatenate these files and create one file all_hits.txt where

the first column is the date in ddmm format (same as above)
and the second and the third columns are the two columns mentioned above

perfect - just what I asked for!

just to notch it up a bit - is it possible in the output file to put the date in a mm/dd format - i.e. 01/30
