FHLL Edges Out A Determined Central Springfield Team 5-4 to Win the 2018 District 9 Championship 

After spotting Central Springfield three runs in the top of the first, Fort Hunt came back to score five in the third and held off rallies by Central Springfield in the top of the fourth, fifth and the sixth to defeat Central Springfield 5-4 and win the 2018 D9 Championship title. Jackson Baker pitched a walk-free complete game for Fort Hunt, striking out five, giving up four runs on eight hits.  

Fort Hunt had a good day at the plate with ten hits. Colligan led all hitters going three for three with three doubles and an RBI. Preston went one for one with an RBI. Luke Cardman was one for one with two RBIs. Arthaud went two for three, Max Ciovacco one for two and Baker and Michaels each went one for three. Fort Hunt’s five runs came with two outs in the third. Jackson Arthaud and Kenny Michaels both reached on hard-hit singles. Connor Preston singled, driving in Arthaud leaving Michaels at third. Baker singles up the center, driving in Michaels. John Colligan then doubles driving in Preston. Shayne Seffernick came on, didn’t get anything to hit and earned a walk, Luke Cardman then singled scoring Baker and Colligan leaving Seffernick stranded at third.

On defense, Fort Hunt had two double plays, a 5-4-3 (Cardman-Colligan-Michaels) in the fifth and a game-ending 9-5-2 (Stradtman-Arthaud-DeYoe). With one out in the top of the sixth and a runner on second, Ryan Stradtman caught a high fly ball in deep right, threw a line drive to Arthaud at third. The runner rounded third and headed home; Arthaud threw a perfect strike to Patrick DeYoe at home plate who, having positioned himself perfectly and making a clean catch, tagged the runner for out number three, ending the game. Notable defensive plays by Jack Bacon at short and Kenny Michaels at first helped hold Central Springfield to four runs which assured the victory.

FHLL Majors next play at the Virginia State Tournament in Cave Springs Virginia Friday July 20 – currently set as a 5:30 game but subject to change.

Message from the FHLL President

Welcome to Fort Hunt Little League

          We’re pleased to host one of Northern Virginia’s highest quality baseball programs for children ages 4 through 18. We continue a long tradition of community baseball in the historic Fort Hunt area of Fairfax County dating to our founding in 1956.

          Fort Hunt Little League Baseball is dedicated to preparing youngsters to meet the challenges of life by developing physical and mental disciplines essential to success through competitive sports and the great game of baseball.

          We play baseball three seasons starting with spring baseball capped off with end-of-season Fun Tournaments for kids who want to play post-season tournament-style play against other District 9 teams followed by Little League All-Star play in summer plus   clinics for youngsters aged 5 through 8 in late summer.

          Fall Ball typically starts a week ahead of Labor Day and continues into early November.

          Spring - Registration for the Spring Season opens January 1 and typically closes the third weekend in February except for T-Ball which remains open until the second weekend in March and the Seniors Division which doesn't close until the 10th or so of May.

Registration for Fall Ball typically opens July 1 and closes the third week in August.

Fort Hunt Little League Baseball is successful because of the thousands of volunteers who  served in League positions both large and small over the years. You can volunteer when you register your player or by contacting me or any FHLL Board member.

FHLL Baseball Divisions

Fort Hunt Little League Baseball Divisions

          Fort Hunt Little League Baseball is organized into divisions which consider skill levels, age and school grade. To the degree possible we keep players together with classmates and neigborhood friends but we move higher skilled players ahead to our upper divisions when warranted to keep challenging all players to do their best. In addition, we try to balance skill levels across divisions and teams so each team and Division is highly competitive. Competitive teams encourages players to compete with each other and themselves and challenges both highly skilled and less skilled players so we leave no one behind.

          Our primary goal is to foster a competitive spirit, good sportsmanship and a love of the wonderful game of baseball. We start from the sure knowledge that successful people have more fun - to that end, we strive to give our players the equipment, facilities and coaching they need to be successful.

          Success on the field starts with understanding and mastering good mechanics. We ask our coaches to strive to achieve three objectives: 1/ teach and encourage good mechanics, 2/ motivate players to commit to the game and compete with themselves and 3/ coach in a spirit of good will and a joy of life. The fun part will take care of itself. All we have to do is assure the players know and practice good mechanics on the field; that they learn to respect the game and their teammates and - always - are involved in an uplifting experience only good coaches can provide.

          Target Ages for the various Divisions are shown below. Descriptions of each Fort Hunt Little League Division are available elsewhere on this site under "League Descriptions."

In brief, T-Ball and the A-Ball Divisions are designed for kids to play with their friends so we place players in those Divisions most often by age and on teams according to parent request.

Players in the AA Division and higher are placed in Divisions by an assessment process and drafted onto teams by Managers. Player assessment and draft order is determined from a combination of skill assessments, coach recommendations, Baseball Age and school grade.

          At the Drafts, Managers select players one at a time, in turn, until all players on the draft board have been selected. Parent requests for a particular team, coach or teammate are available to Managers who consider them as best they can at each draft.  

FHLL DIVISIONS - TARGETED AGES

  • T-Ball — 4, 5 & 6 year olds
  • A Division — 6, 7 & 8
  • AA Division  — 7, 8 & 9
  • AAA Division — 8, 9 & 10
