2017 HCLL Hit-A-Thon

Updated Friday June 2, 2017 by Habersham Little League.

We are pleased to announce the first annual Habersham County Little League Hit-A-Thon. This unique event will take place on Saturday, June 17th at 11:00 AM. The Hit-A-Thon is open to all athletes between the ages of 7 and 12. As you know, HCLL is a non-profit organization run completely on volunteer time and commitment. Therefore, the HCLL Hit-A-Thon will also serve as our final fundraiser for the 2016-2017 season.

Although HCLL has had a very successful fundraising season, our operating expenses still exceed our revenues. These much needed funds will go toward ongoing field maintenance, umpire expenses, and equipment for our sports complex. The event will also give our players and families one last chance to enjoy the camaraderie developed over the course of the season in a fun competition. The entire community is invited to attend this event. Food and concessions will be available for sale to the public.

We hope that all HCLL players will commit to raise at least $100.00 in pledges for the league. Prizes will be awarded to top fundraisers overall and the top fundraiser per age group. The Grand Prize will go to the top fundraising individual or family. Prizes will also be awarded to the top fundraising player from each division. Prizes may include:

  • Season Passes to the 2018 Habersham Raider Baseball Season
  • Multiple $50.00 Gift Card
  • Multiple $25.00 Gift Card
  • HCLL swag and more.


Registration and donation forms can be downloaded below. Registration is now open. You may register prior to the event or at 10 AM on the day of the event.  Pledges can be a one-time flat donation or based on the number of feet your athlete hits his or her ball during the Hit-A-Thon. Per foot pledges will need to be submitted no later than June 24, 2017.
