Hit-A-Thon and Mid-season Update

We’re at the halfway point of the regular season, so this week’s message previews some exciting things happening in May, including our annual fundraiser and the beginning of playoff action.

 But first, a note about COVID. Thanks for continuing to prescreen, mask up, and follow all protocols. Player and coach/volunteer protocols remain unchanged. Spectators on the move or visiting with others are asked to wear masks. Spectators seated with their family unit, 6’ from others, are not required to mask. 

 What’s next? Hit A Thon!

 After a one-year hiatus, our annual Hit-A-Thon fundraiser is back! This event helps keep our registration fees as low as possible and helps pay for projects to keep our equipment and fields top notch. This year’s donations will help us pay for our winter projects including the refurbishment of the Press Box, new scoreboard, and the construction of the hitting stations AND will help with another exciting soon-to-be-announced project!

 Hitting will take place outdoors during a regularly scheduled practice for COVID-compliance. Any hit past a certain distance earns you a HR in the scorebook (distance varies based on level). These special “at bats” will take place the week of May 17, but fundraising begins tomorrow!

 Our goal is to raise $1,200 per team, and $100 per player, for Single A through Intermediate, and $600 per team, and $50 per player, at T-ball. Each player has a personal donation webpage that will be emailed to you directly tomorrow. Friends, family, and neighbors can donate online, so there is no need to keep track of pledges or handle money. To view and customize your player’s page, or if you don’t receive an email from 99 Pledges tomorrow, search for your player’s name at https://app.99pledges.com/fund/FCKLL2021.

 The players who raise the most money AND hit the most homers win coveted prizes—including baseball apparel and bragging rights. Stay tuned for more prize details.

 Have you aged out of FCKLL, or are you a parent looking to see if you still got it?  Save the date of May 22nd at 6pm for our first-ever adult Hit-a-Thon and Home Run Derby held at Westgate Lower. There is a minimum $25 donation to enter for ages 14+. Click here for details and to register. For further information, check your team’s schedule on www.fckll.org or visit theHit-A-Thon page.
