Why are we having a Hit-a-thon Fundraiser?  


From our "FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions)"

Q.  How much does it cost to play in SLVLL?

A.  The registration fees have been held at $130 PER PLAYER since 2010.


Q.  But what does it cost the league to run, per player?

A.  SLVLL did a study from 2011-2013 and found that it annually costs about $187-$200 per player to run our league.  This amount includes many small items but the big ones are field use, uniforms, photography, equipment, and umpires.  Keep in mind that some players participate under partial or full scholarship.  SLVLL makes up the difference between the registration fees and actual costs through fundraisers, the snack shack, banner sales, and team/player sponsorships.


Other local Little Leagues have found a Hit-a-thon to be a relatively easy way to include all players in a fundraising effort.  There are no sales involved, no product to deliver later, just a fun activity where Little Leaguers seek pledges/donations and get to swing a bat at the ball AND help the local league at the same time!  From the newest T-ballers to the 12-year old Majors players, ALL can participate!  Each player can utilize the Hit-a-thon site to seek support from family and friends near and far!  Every player registered for the Spring 2015 season has his/her own special page on the Hit-a-thon website, which can be customized with photos of your choosing, special messages, etc.  You can share the link to your player's page via email and social media.


The actual Hit-a-thon will take place on Sunday, April 12th, at the Majors field at SLV High School, starting at 9 AM (a more detailed schedule will be made available closer to the event).  If EVERY player in our league gets only six $10 pledges, we will exceed our goal of $15,000! 

Within each division (T-ball, A, AA, AAA, and Majors), there will be prizes for the greatest distances AND for the top fund-raiser.  For the player who raises the most money overall in pledges and donations, there will be a special prize.

If you have any questions regarding this fundraiser, please contact Nick Purtscher at (please put Hit-A-Thon in the subject line).

Santa Cruz Pony League

For players who have aged out of Little League and want to continue playing baseball, the next opportunity to play before high school is the Santa Cruz Pony League.  Many of our players have maintained their skills and excelled in Pony.  For more information, please go to  The Santa Cruz Pony League is always looking for adult volunteers to help keep the program going, too (nomination forms can be found on their website).  Expect to join many SLV parents there!
