University City Little League 2015 Hit a Thon Fundraiser

Saturday, April 11, 2015

Fort Field


On Saturday, April 11, UCLL will be holding its 2nd Annual  Hit-a-Thon fundraiser to help support our youth baseball, and our League-wide Barbecue.  This will be an opportunity for players to use their bats to raise funds towards program enhancements, field improvements and baseball equipment.


In order to undertake these initiatives, we are asking for 100% participation in our Hit-a-Thon fundraiser. 

What is the Hit-a-Thon and how does it work?

  • Players from all divisions use batting skills to earn $ for the league, and top hitters / fundraisers will earn prizes

  • Each player will be given a Pledge Sheet (Click Here).  Players ask relatives, friends, neighbors, teachers, parent’s co-workers, and others to sponsor them in their baseball league’s Hit-a-Thon

    • Can either donate based on distance, or a flat fee

    • Checks should be made out to “University City Little League”

  • Logistics:

    • Each player will be given 5 pitches / swings (off the tee for 7 and under, pitching machine for 8 and older)

    • We will take the players longest hit and multiply it by the amount of the pledge (example:  $0.10 per foot pledge, 300 foot hit X 0.10=$30 donation)

    • If the ball goes over the fence, the distance of the field will be measured for pledge purposes

    • If necessary, we can have tie breakers for longest hit

    • After the event, the players and families will be responsible for collecting the pledges and returning them to University City Little League by the end of May

    • Awards will be given out during the Closing day ceremony

  • There will be 2 “types” of prizes – Participation and Performance

    • Participation

      • Top fundraising team

      • Top fundraising individuals

      • Participation prize for everyone who collects a minimum of $35 in donations

      • Random drawing for all participants who collect $75 or more

    • Performance

      • Longest hit per team

      • Longest hit by age bracket

In addition to the Hit-a-Thon, we will have our league wide barbecue at 4:30.  Your involvement is greatly appreciated, and we look forward to 100% player participation.

Thank you,


Board of Directors
