FHLL Majors and 11s All Star at State !
Play Ball !!!
Hi Baseball Fans
It's been another great year for Fort Hunt Little League players and families. We had an awesome Spring season - enjoyed inspiring play in District 9 Fun Tournaments and then on to All Stars where three teams - count 'em - THREE TEAMS - Intermediate, Majors and 11U - won District 9 Championships and went on to represent Fort Hunt so well in State Tournament play.
I hope you are all having an awesome summer. We're getting ready for another great Little League Baseball season - Fall Ball - when kids once again enjoy this great game, can play with friends and grow not only in athletic skill but also learn how to be better teammates - what fair play and sportsmanship is all about.
FHLL Majors All Star team fell 5-3 to Tuckahoe American LL at the 2018 Virginia State All Star tournament today. Kenny Michaels started on the mound and went four and two-thirds. Kenny helped his cause with a solo home run in the bottom of the second to get FHLL on the scoreboard. Ryan Stradtman came on in relief, pitching an inning and a third. FHLL scored one in the second and two in the third. Tuckahoe scored two in the first, two in the third and one in the fifth. FHLL had five hits on the day; Tuckahoe had seven.
Michaels helped his cause with a solo home run in the second, going one for three with two RBIs on the day. Connor Preston went one for one with one RBI; Jackson Arthaud went two for three and Jack Bacon one for three at the plate for Fort Hunt.
Fort Hunt Majors All Stars went 7-0 in District 9 play scoring 58 runs and allowing 13 to claim the 2018 District 9 Little League Majors Division Championship. This year’s District 9 win is only the third in Fort Hunt LL’s 62-year history - the other two were 2006 and 2017.
At state, FHLL lost a tough opening game Friday 0-1 against Loudoun South then beat Bennett's Creek 16-0 Saturday and Coeburn 18-2 Sunday. Today's was a well-played game pitting two of the best teams in the state against each other - only one could win.
We're very proud of this Majors team and all they were able to accomplish this year. Hats off to Manager Jack Arthaud and Coaches Joel Bacon and AJ Melvin - to Laura Colligan, our awesome Team Parent - and to all the great players of the 2018 FHLL Majors All Star Team !

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.

All local Little Leagues are driven and sustained by volunteers, and the volunteer category that we (and other locals LLs) struggle to fill more than any other? Not surprisingly it is the role of Umpire. Please consider volunteering for this most critical role - see the FHLL Umpire links on the FHLL page for information about upcoming training opportunities in March that will help prepare you for this rewarding and exciting position.
