SlugFest

SLUGFEST 2022

SDLL’s one and only annual fundraiser is SlugFest. All monies raised by the SlugFest fundraiser are intended for use by SDLL to provide new and/or improved facilities and equipment for our players. Last year, our families hit it out of the park, smashing our previous SlugFest fundraising record. Every one of those donations made a difference to our organization. This past year, we used funds for some significant capital improvements at different fields. At Parkwood Field, SDLL was able to build new batting cages, install a new fence, and install new dugouts. SDLL was also able to provide a new, permanent shed and install bleachers at Alston Ridge Middle School. We were also able to refurbish the infield of Pearsontown Elementary School, giving us another much needed field. We have also purchased some new tractors and continue to purchase needed equipment. We know these are not glamorous items but they are essential to giving our SDLL softball and baseball players the highest quality fields on which to learn the game of softball or baseball.   

SlugFest 2022 is scheduled for April 29th and April 30th at both Southern Boundaries and Herndon Park. All softball teams are scheduled for Southern Boundaries on April 29th and Majors Baseball teams are scheduled for Herndon Park on April 29th. All Rookie and A teams are scheduled for Southern Boundaries on April 30th and all AA and AAA teams are scheduled for Herndon Park on April 30th. See below for slugging times. 

Each individual player is asked to collect flat donations for SlugFest. The league fundraising goal is $40,000. We need your help to get there! Each baseball (Rookie through Majors) and softball (Minors and Majors) team has a fundraising goal of $1200. All T-Ball teams have a fundraising goal of $300. Some of the many individual participant and team awards, prizes and giveaways are as follows:

  1. FREE GIVEAWAY – an SDLL cooling towel with SDLL logo for all players who raise money for SlugFest.

  2. FREE PRIZES – every player raising money for SlugFest, whether swinging or not, will be entered into the Annual SlugFest Raffle. The raffle occurs a few days after SlugFest, and the SDLL goal is to raffle 100 prizes, including baseball and softball camps and clinics, gift certificates from many local restaurants and stores, DUKE, UNC, SDLL and LLWS apparel and goods, Durham Bulls giveaways and more!  

  3. FREE LOCOPOP – a free Locopop from SDLL for each player whose team (all Softball and Baseball Teams) has 100% participation. T-ball teams meeting their team goal ($300) will receive a free Locopop for all players.

  4. FREE PIZZA – Rookie through Majors baseball teams and all softball teams achieving their team fundraising goal ($1200) will earn free cheese or pepperoni pizza and drinks on SDLL from a local league pizza sponsor. All t-ball teams with 100% participation will receive a free pizza party from a local league sponsor.

  5. FREE SWINGS – for all baseball and softball teams achieving their team fundraising goal prior to their scheduled slugging time, each player on the team will receive the maximum number of swings (12) regardless of the amount each individual player raised.

  6. DURHAM BULLS FIELD OF DREAMS - The top 15 players (Rookie through Majors Baseball Teams and all Softball Teams) to raise the most money, along with the top 3 fundraising t-ball players, will be eligible to participate in the Durham Bulls Field of Dreams during SDLL Night at the DBAP, scheduled for June 5th.

  7. SLUGFEST TROPHY – for all baseball and softball teams, the slugging champs for each division will be given a 1st, 2nd and 3rd place SlugFest trophy at the End of Season Tournament Championship Game. 

New this year, in addition to accepting checks and cash, SDLL will be utilizing Give Lively for Peer-to-Peer Fundraising! Please click here for instructions on how to set up your player’s peer-to-peer fundraising link and how to share that link with friends and family.

All donations to SDLL are tax deductible. In addition, your player should receive his/her SlugFest fundraising collection envelope from your team coach or parent in April. If you do not receive it, please let your coach or team parent know. Remember, all donations collected for SlugFest are a flat donation. If you donate via check or cash and need a donation receipt, please click here.

SlugFest is a great day of baseball and softball and your chance to swing for the fences! We can’t wait to see you there!
