General Info on Summer
Sunnyvale Little League will offer a 2023 Summer
Sandlot baseball program starting in late July and will run through the start
of Fall Ball, which begins on September 10th. This program is ONLY available to
those children who played in a Majors or Minors Division in the spring OR a
player who participated in a Farm Division and is transitioning to Minors in
the Spring of 2024.
This is NOT Fall Ball. registration for that
program remains open until mid-August. For information on that program, please
visit our registration page.
This is an opportunity for players to
continue playing baseball during the summer in an informal setting (no
uniforms, practices, just show up and play). We have decided to change the
format of this program from the drills-based setup from a few years ago to a
focus on game play and skills work this summer:
We will run a Majors Division on Mondays and
Wednesdays and a Minors Division on Tuesdays and Thursdays. We will run from
5:30 to approximately 7:30 each day. Games are subject to
cancellation at any time so please be flexible on this point. We are trying to
run this program with volunteer coaches who also have jobs and families of
their own. We will try to send out email notices on game status, which
will require that you sign up for an email distribution list that we will
maintain for the program.
- We will form teams of 5 players who will stay
together through the program as a "team". Some team adjustments may occur
during the program to establish parity among groups. Please do not request to
play with a friend. We are trying to create parity among teams.
- We will play 5 inning games (as time allows), where
two teams of 5 play defense while a third team of 5 bats. The format will
provide more frequent at bats per player.
- Players will not play the same defensive position
more than once per game, which requires rotation to different positions and
provides for every player to experience all positions.
- If more than three groups of 5 are present, we will
rotate additional groups to skills stations (e.g. batting cages, throwing
stations, etc). If we have 6 groups of 5 present, we will run two games
- High school players from Homestead and Fremont HS
will assist in coaching, along with several SVLL adult coaches.
- Those adults who wish to manage in the spring
should participate as coaches.
- No uniforms or equipment will be issued. Your child
needs to show up with their own glove, bat, and helmet. Baseball hat and
baseball pants/belt are MANDATORY. NO SWEAT PANTS, SHORTS OR JEANS.
There is NO FEE for
this program, BUT you should only participate if your child can attend on a
regular basis. Will will prioritize SVLL returning players, but will add
non-league players as space allows.

child participate, please fill out the form located
