VLL Puts the "Fun" in Fall Ball - REGISTER NOW!

While it may be hard to believe in the midst of this heat wave, fall will be here sooner than we think.  And fall means Fall Ball, VLL's development-focused season designed to promote player growth.  The time commitment is reduced in the fall to allow participation in multiple sports or other after-school/weekend activities, and Fall Ball provides a relaxed environment to build skills with experienced coaches and players.  Some players may use Fall Ball to try playing baseball for the first time. Others may repeat their spring level, or play at the level they aspire to for the following spring. There are no player evaluations for Fall Ball.

Teams will be forming in mid-August. Register by July 31 to avoid late fees or missing out. Interested managers and parents with questions should contact our Fall Ball Director, Chad Bishop, at [email protected]

Code Red: Vienna American 8-10 All Stars Take Regional Title

Undefeated in a total of 18 All Star games and 5 scrimmages, the Vienna American 8-10 All Star team took home the title in the Little League Tournament of State Champions. The final matchup was against a team from Smyrna, Georgia, who were also undefeated going into the Championship Game.  But Virginia came out on top, ending the game in 5 innings with a score of 14-1. Congratulations to the players, coaches, and families on their incredible season!

Vienna American Majors All Stars to Represent Virginia in the Little League SouthEast Region Tournament  

In 2022, the Vienna Little League American 11U All Stars did something special; they brought home the first regional championship to the Town of Vienna in 50 years. As Majors players, they are about to try and do it again.

After three perfect summer seasons together, the team - affectionately known as the Big Red Machine - has won over 40 games, three Virginia District 4 championships, three Virginia State championships, and one SouthEast Region title at the Tournament of State Champions in Wilson, North Carolina.

And they are not done yet. The Big Red Machine is now headed to represent Vienna and the state of Virginia in the Little League SouthEast Region tournament in Warner Robbins, Georgia. While there they will potentially face teams from Alabama, Florida, Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, and West Virginia. All with the goal of winning the tournament and advancing to the Little League World Series in Williamsport, PA (August 16 - 27).

Follow along on the Big Red Machine's journey starting Wednesday, August 3 at 1:00 pm; Virginia will play South Carolina at this time and the game will be streamed on ESPN+.

This team of players and managers has developed quite a following over the past three summers because of their dedication and love of the game.

Lets go Big Red Red Machine!
