Pre-Owned Baseball Gear/Clothing Swap on March 9

Clean out your garage and join us for a baseball equipment and clothing swap on Saturday, March 9, from 1:30-3:30 pm at the Vienna Community Center (Southside Room).

Families can swap gently used, game-ready baseball equipment and clothing -- gloves, bats, batting helmets, catcher’s gear, cleats, baseball pants, belts, equipment bags, etc. Exchange equipment and clothing your ballplayer has outgrown for the right size and color.

You do NOT need to contribute anything to participate, and all baseball equipment and clothing is free. (We will, however, gladly accept the contribution of non-perishable food items for donation to the Vienna-based Committee for Helping Others food bank.)

Not available on March 9, or just have gear you'd like to contribute in advance? There will be a collection drive on Saturday, March 2 from 9-11 am at Yeonas Park (near the snack bar), and volunteers will be there to receive it.

Any unclaimed items after the swap event will be donated to Leveling the Playing Field, a non-profit organization that redistributes equipment to expand access and equity within youth sports and recreation programs in under-resourced communities.

Gear Up for the Season at Dick's Sporting Goods

From March 15-17, VLL families can take 20% off their entire purchase at the Dick's store at Fair Oaks. CLICK HERE for the 20%-off in-store coupon. (And if you need something before or after 3/15-3/17, we have other VLL coupons good in-store throughout the year.) If you're thinking of buying your Little Leaguer a new baseball bat or glove but aren't sure what size or style to get, we recommend you take a few minutes to watch these "how to" videos from our sponsor Dick's Sporting Goods.

Call 'Em Like You See 'Em: Umpires Wanted (Ages 13+)

Training opportunities will be available for new and returning umpires in early April. Officiating Little League games is a great job opportunity for former VLL players (ages 13 and up); adults are needed too -- no experience required. Pay range is $40-$60 per game. Our web/app-based scheduling and payroll system has improved operations logistics. Uniform and protective gear provided by VLL. Contact Umpire-in-Chief Brian Descovich at [email protected] or
