Home Run Derby
Saturday 8:00 AM - Monday 11:59 PM PDT
On April 13th, we will be hosting the first round of the Dublin Little League Home Run Derby to help our league raise the money it needs to support our young athletes. We hope all players will participate, you do not have to fundraiser to participate in the first round! This event is open to all DLL players Tee-Ball to Intermediates.
The success of this event relies on each player reaching out to their network of friends and family to solicit donations made through the DLL Givebutter website, or collecting cash or checks, a copy of the donation sheet is attached to the Jamboree email.
Our goal this year is to raise money to support the leagues ability to maintain the fields and limit the disruptions of games throughout the season. This creates a goal for each family to raise $30.00. The team who fundraises the most collectively as of April 13th, will win an ice cream party. The player who fundraises the most by April 13th will win a $100 VISA gift card!
The final round for the Home Run Derby will be held on May 11, 2019, at Fallon Sports Park. Additional information on the Home Run Derby Finals will be announced by May 2nd, including the winners from each team that will advance to the finals. DLL will be hosting a movie night following the award ceremony that is open to everyone.
