March 2013 Newsletter
If you are still waiting to be notified by your coach (T-ball), thanks for your patience. We had 24 kids sign up in the last two weeks and have been working hard to find coaches and assign teams. We are very excited to have more than 415 players this year...our highest number in recent years.
Opening Day Has Arrived
Please join Mountain View Little League on Saturday, March 9th for Opening Day Ceremonies at McKelvey Park. All players should be at McKelvey no later than 11:40am to gather with their Managers and Coaches for Team introductions. Please arrive early, as there is limited parking at the field. Festivities start promptly at 12 Noon.
Sunday, April 21 - Picture Day / Hit-a-Thon Fundraiser
Please reserve this date on your calendar, as Sunday April 21st will be our annual Team and Individual Picture Day with Shooting Star Productions. We will also be conducting the Hit-a-Thon contest, where all players in all Divisions will be hitting for individual prizes in an effort to support MVLL. This is the main fundraiser for the League and your participation is greatly appreciated. More information will be coming from your team Managers.
May 12 (Mother’s Day) MVLL Day at AT&T Ballpark- San Francisco Giants vs Atlanta Braves
MVLL has secured a block of tickets for the San Francisco Giants against the Atlanta Braves on Sunday May 12th. MVLL has a limited number of bleacher and 3rd base view reserved tickets at $30 each. Tickets will be available beginning Saturday March 9th, during Opening Ceremonies for this great afternoon outing. Last year’s event was a great success, so get your tickets early to bring your family to see a game at the best ballpark in the country. This event has sold out quickly in the past. Look for the table near the snack shack where Sandy Bartlett will be selling tickets. The ticket selling table will be open from 11am to 2pm.
BRING YOUR CHECKBOOK OR CASH TO PAY FOR YOUR TICKETS. NO TICKETS WILL BE HELD WITHOUT PAYMENT!
After Opening Day, please email Sandy Bartlett at email@example.com
We do not yet have the SF Giants Pre-game Little League Day activities agenda for this year. We expect that it will be similar to last year with gates opening at 9am for Little League Day participants - Q&A with SF Giants coaches & players and the Little League parade. And there will be the ever-popular post-game "kids run the bases!”
Please note that MVLL does not arrange transportation to AT&T Park. Try taking Caltrain to the game - the best way to get there without the stress of driving and expense of parking.
Let's play some ball!
