M-ALL Hit-a-Thon and Home Run Derby a Smashing Success!
On Sunday May 18th Menlo-Atherton Little League held our annual Hit-a-Thon and Home Run Derby at Burgess Park. Players across all divisions showed up at Burgess throughout the day to swing their bats and raise money for the league. All funds raised for the event are going towards increased investments in player and coach development clinics, field equipment to ensure our fields are properly maintained and to provide a safe environment for players and coaches, increased city field usage fees and more scholarships to make sure a positive baseball experience is available to everyone in our community.
Final results are still being calculated, but we’re currently on track to exceed our fundraising goal! We will be announcing the various team and individual prize winners shortly, so please come back and check out the website. Raffle drawings will be selected at Player Appreciation Day on June 7th.
