We don’t sell candy for a fundraiser. We don’t sell cookie dough or magazines either. We do Hit-a-Thon! Ask family friends and relatives to sponsor your Little Leaguer with a flat donation or a pledge for distance batted. Plus there are individual prizes and a team prize for the most money raised.

Be at McKelvey on Sunday, March 26, 2023 at your team’s designated arrival time for team and individual photos. Every player receives a team and individual picture free of charge by registering online before the event. Be sure to bring a printed copy of the order confirmation (receipt). The confirmation is needed to enter the photo area.

About Field Closures

Posted by Mountain View California Little League at Mar 15, 2023 1:31PM PDT

About Mountain View Athletic Fields Closures

City field closures are announced in a pre-recorded message (posted by 3 PM, weekdays): 650-903-6416

As a general rule of thumb: a) if it is raining, or b) the fields squish when you walk on them, or c) there are puddles of standing water, the field is closed. If it’s the weekend (city offices are closed and not able to provide daily guidance), the city requests we use our best judgement for using natural grass fields after a rain.

On weekdays and weekends, MVLL announces field closures on this website and on our office voicemail 650-961-2065.

MVLL Families can purchase athletic gear and apparel at a discount using the eCoupon in this announcement. This year ’round coupon can be redeemed multiple times. $10 off athletic footwear (minimum purchase required), 15% off of athletic apparel, or 10% off sports equipment. (Exclusions apply as stated on the coupons.)


DICK’s Sporting Goods is a long time sponsor of MVLL. The nearest DICK’s retail store is in Sunnyvale.

As anticipated, the City has closed all grass fields for the weekend (March 11-12, 2023). The fields are saturated. As of 12 Noon, Friday, the fields have received over 1.5 inches of rain since yesterday’s start of this storm.

Opening Day is this Saturday, March 4, at Little McKelvey. It will rain. How hard? Don’t know. But we are going for it! Bring an umbrella and let’s have some fun welcoming everyone to the MVLL 2023 spring season!!!

The ceremony begins at 12 noon. Players are requested to arrive at 11:30 to begin forming up by teams in the Big McKelvey outfield. Each team will parade onto the Little McKelvey outfield beginning with the T-Ball Division and ending with the Junior Division A’s — 23 teams in total.

Please have all players wear their uniforms for the ceremony. Work with your team managers for any additional guidance.

We have fun activities planned when the ceremony ends and ’til 1:30 PM, but we really need your help in running them that day. Please sign up for a shift at — email Jaime at with questions!
