VLL Teaming with I Am ALS for Lou Gehrig Day on June 3

The Vienna Little League community will join Little Leagues across the country on June 3 to participate in Lou Gehrig Day, a collaboration between the ALS community and baseball organizations that seeks to raise awareness of ALS, a currently incurable neurodegenerative disease that took the life of Gehrig, a seven-time MLB All Star and the self-proclaimed "luckiest man on the face of the earth." In partnership with the charity I Am ALS, VLL will make wristbands and stickers available to players, parents, and family members to wear at games on June 3 and display on social media.

VLL Celebrates Girls & Women in Baseball on June 2

Girls ages 4-12 are invited to join VLL on Friday, June 2, from 5-6 PM for a GIRLS WITH GAME clinic and celebration of girls and women in baseball. This free event will take place at Yeonas Park (Nance Field). You can sign up your player HERE.

Launched in 2019, the Little League Girls with Game initiative is dedicated to honoring all the girls and women who have made the Little League program what it is today, and those who inspire the future generation of female participants at every level. 

Nats Player Coming to Yeonas June 3 for Donuts & Dingers

The Washington Nationals have selected Vienna Little League for a special player visit event – "Donuts & Dingers" – on Saturday, June 3, the final day of the regular season for our Majors, 3A & 2A programs. We have shifted our game schedule to allow all players to attend this Yeonas Park event from 10-11 AM at Crabtree Field.

After a Q&A session between the Nationals player (TBD) and players from our Minors program, the event will feature a two-round Home Run Derby involving four of the regular-season HR leaders from our Majors program – the top two each from the AL and NL – plus a final round between the youth winner and the Nationals player.

The snack bar will be open, and the Mama's Donut Bites food truck will be on hand. Plan to arrive early as parking will be tight, and be respectful of our neighbors surrounding Yeonas Park.

Volunteer Opportunity: 12-Year-Old Banquet on June 4

One of VLL's longstanding traditions is the annual 12-year-old banquet, a special occasion to mark the completion of a player's time on the Little League.  

We are in need of volunteers to assist with the setup for this large event. If you have an hour to spare, even if your child is not a 12-year-old this year, you can sign up HERE.

As an all-volunteer organization, VLL depends upon our entire community to pitch in throughout the season. This year's banquet committee thanks you in advance for your support!
