Joe Chavez, Volunteers Day!

Huntington Valley Little League Honors Joe Chavez
"Thank a Volunteer Day" -  Saturday, May 7, 2022

It has been said that one of the greatest gifts you can give, is the gift of your time. Anyone who has been around HVLL knows how very fortunate we are to have many wonderful volunteers who embody that sentiment. So on this day -- in addition to those amazing helpers -- we will celebrate one extra special gift to our community who is gone too soon: Joe Chavez. 

For those of you who didn’t have the great fortune of knowing Joe, he was a staple in and around Huntington Beach. When it comes to our baseball family, Joe was definitely an MVP.  As a D62 umpire, he spent countless hours on these fields, not to mention all the time performing field maintenance to keep them at the top of their game. We are not only grateful for the time he donated, but also the enthusiasm he showed for the kids, and his overall love and appreciation of the amazing game of baseball. Although he is no longer with us, his memory will live on. 

To commemorate this exciting day, the Little League Pledge, Pledge of Allegiance, and a volunteer message will take place on the Majors field and Minor A field before the 9 am game. In addition, there will be a host of talented umpires from around the area on hand to join in the fun, including the head umpire for the district and the head umpire for the region.  There will be a six man umpire crew, yes you read that correctly, SIX man umpire crew at the majors game, and a 3-4 man umpire crew on A, so please be on your best behavior

Please come out early and take a few extra minutes to thank someone special today for their efforts! In honor of Joe and all of our volunteers...let's PLAY BALL!
