Picture Day and Hit-a-Thon on Sunday, April 23

Picture Day: Each player will receive a free personal and team photo through Shooting Stars Productions, so please be sure to attend this fun day!

SCHEDULE
for Picture Day and Hit-A-Thon

Note: AAA = Minors, AA = Farm, A = Rookie


Hit-a-Thon: We don't do cookie sales, we don't do magazine subscriptions, we do Hit-a-Thon! ALL players in ALL divisions will be batting for individual and team prizes in an effort to support MVLL. This is the main fundraiser for the League and your participation is needed and much appreciated. Our player registration fees are very affordable because of the great participation we get at Hit-a-Thon, from our sponsors, and Snack Shack sales. The goal this year is for each player is to raise a minimum of $50 by getting relative, friends and neighbors to sponsor the player's participation (families with more than one player can set their fundraising goal at $35 for each youngster). Individual and team prizes will be awarded. Prizes include a Team Pizza party for the overall Team that collects the highest donations, Team Ice Cream parties for Division fundraising leaders and individual baseball prizes for the Hit-a-Thon distance winners in each division.
The Longest Distance Batter from each team will be awarded a $1 coupon good at McKelvey's Snack Shack.

Information packets were distributed to team managers in March.  If you did not receive a packet please contact your Team Parent or Team Manager. The day's schedule for each team's photo and hit-a-thon sessions are in the packets. A Pledge Forms was also in each packet.
The Snack Shack will be Open!

The Minors, Farm, Rookie and T-Ball Divisions Teams are encouraged to participate in this great community event. Teams will meet up with their Managers or Coaches beginning at 9:30 AM near the corner of Castro and Villa Streets (the Main Post Office is on Villa). A league board member will be there for check-in. Teams will march in the parade by division with T-Ball first, followed by Rookie A, Farm AA, then Minors AAA. Within each division, teams will line-up alphabetically by team name. The parade starts promptly at 10, rain or shine. Invite your family, friends, and neighbors to come and see the parade and cheer on MVLL as we march down Castro Street. After the parade, there'll be food, games crafts and fun at Pioneer Park to 1 PM. Food trucks and carts will be on site selling food as well. [MV Recreation Division Announcement]
