How Does it Work?

WHEN IS IT?           On OPENING DAY - Saturday, February 24, 2018

WHERE IS IT?         Fields at Huntington Valley Little League     

IS THERE A SPONSOR?       
YES!  Rawlings has generously stepped up to sponsor the 2018 event.   
WHAT IS IT?
 
The Hit-a-thon is our largest fundraising event of the year. In addition, it provides a fun-for-all event on opening day and is inclusive for all players. Instead of going door-to-door selling raffle tickets for example, it affords the opportunity to collect a wide-range of dollar amounts from a larger group of sponsors, regardless of where they live. Players can easily reach out to friends and family across the planet via email and social media avenues. Donors may submit payments via credit card via this easy-to-use, and secure site. The money raised helps keep our registration fees affordable, maintain our baseball fields/facilities, provide a quality experience for all of our players and also fund our scholarship program so that everyone has a chance to play.  

HOW DO I GET PLEDGES?
In order to make collecting pledges easier than ever, we have enlisted the services of 99Pledges.com. Each player will have their own personal pledge page. You will receive an email invitation to get your page started. Pledges will be accepted until noon, on the day of the event, February 24, 2018.

HOW DO I GET STARTED?
It’s easy! Start by sending emails to your friends and family with the link to your personal pledge page. You can also post the link to Facebook and Twitter (and add a picture or video message if you’d like). Then watch the donations come rolling in! Remember that all donations are tax-deductible.

HOW DOES IT WORK?
Pledges can either be made as a lump sum or on a “per hit” basis. Each player will receive 10 pitches, and hits will be recorded and entered onto each player’s personal pledge page. Pledges will automatically be deducted at that time based on the number of hits. All players will receive a credit for a minimum of 7 hits, and a maximum of 10 hits.

CAN PLEDGES BE MADE BY CASH/CHECK?
Sure! However, pledges made via cash or check may only be for a lump sum amount. Checks should be made payable to Huntington Valley Little League and accompanied by the Pledge Form so they can be applied to the player/team as appropriate.

WHAT IF I ALREADY PAID THE BUYOUT FEE DURING REGISTRATION?
That’s alright. The event is designed to be inclusive for ALL players. On the big day, ALL PLAYERS – regardless of whether they got pledges or paid the buyout fee – will get their chance at 10 pitches. While you may choose to seek out pledges for a chance to win some great prizes, if you’ve already paid the buyout fee, it’s is encouraged, but not required.
