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.  Some recent examples include new field tractors, storage facilities, field work at Githens, Shepard, Hillside and Alston Ridge softball fields as well as additional work at Cresset Christian Academy, Herndon Park and Parkwood, new base plates at various fields, new catching gear, machine pitch pitcher helmets, baseball bats and batting helmets, to name just a few. 

SlugFest is normally scheduled for a Saturday at the end of April or first of May at Herndon Park. Each individual player is asked to collect flat donations for SlugFest. The league fundraising goal is $24,000.  We need your help to get there!  Each baseball (Rookie through Majors) and softball (Minors and Majors) team has a fundraising goal of $1000. All T-Ball teams have a fundraising goal of $250. Some of the many individual participant and team awards, prizes and giveaways are as follows:

1)    FREE GIVEAWAY – a clear SDLL stadium security approved tote bag 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, private lessons, gift certificates from many local restaurants and stores, DUKE, UNC, NCCU, SDLL and LLWS apparel and goods, autographed collegiate baseballs, Durham Bulls giveaways and more! 

3)    FREE LOCOPOP – a free Locopop from SDLL for each player whose team (T-Ball through Majors Baseball Teams and all Softball Teams) has 100% participation.

4)    FREE PDQ TENDERS – T-Ball Teams achieving their special team fundraising goal will earn a free chicken tender party at PDQ!

5)    FREE PIZZA – Rookie through Majors baseball teams and all softball teams achieving their team fundraising goal will earn free cheese or pepperoni pizza and drinks on SDLL from a local league pizza sponsor.

6)    FREE SWINGS – for all baseball and softball teams achieving their team fundraising goal on May 2 prior to their scheduled slugging time, each player on the team will receive the maximum numbers of swings (12) regardless of the amount each individual player raised. That’s 3 swings for $25, 5 for $50, 8 for $75, 10 for $100 and 12 for $125 OR if your team total funds raised is $1000 or more, everyone on the team slugging is eligible for 12 swings – work as a team and swing for the fences more!

7)    DURHAM BULLS FIELD OF DREAMS TEAM - The top 15 players (Rookie through Majors Baseball Teams and all Softball Teams) and top 3 T-Ballers to raise the most money will be eligible to run out on the field and be introduced prior to the start of the Durham Bulls game at SDLL Night at the DBAP (order your tickets through special SDLL/Bulls online ticketing, every ticket sold $6 is donated to SDLL).

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

SlugFest collection envelopes will be coming in April and a new online donation site will be launched for this event.  Please see your team coach and/or team parent for more detailed information and instructions about SlugFest.  

SlugFest is a great day of fun.  We hope to have the Kona Ice or similar Frozen Treat Truck onsite and food is being provided by our SDLL Sponsor Jersey Mike’s Subs at Falconbridge Center. Come on out, and cheer on your favorite SDLL sluggers!
