29 Diner Community Pantry & Kitchen

Greetings Fairfax Little League!

First of all, I hope you're all hanging in there and staying safe and healthy during this unprecedented time. 

I'd like to ask that you please consider joining The NOVA Royals Baseball Club in supporting John Wood, owner and operator of 29 Diner.  John Wood has been a long-time supporter of Fairfax Little League and sponsored many of our teams for years.  

John and his team created a community pantry where they have been feeding local families and acting as true heroes as we continue to navigate the effects of the pandemic. We feel that it's in the true spirit of sportsmanship that is inherent in both the Fairfax Little League and the NOVA Royals Baseball Club to help support John, 29 Diner, his employees, and those in our community in need.

Our goal is not a small one. But we know that together, we can make a huge difference and support a small, local business that has supported us so generously in the past. All of the money being raised will go toward filling the community pantry which is open seven days a week from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. and serves people in Fairfax in need.

What John is doing is simply remarkable.  John sent us a summary of what he's been doing.
 
From John Wood:
 
Our 29 Diner Community First Initiative and our FREE Community Pantry & Kitchen has fed over 19,000 free meals to at-risk youths, their families, frontline first responders and hospital heros over the last 10 weeks. 
 
We have fed entire hospitals, in the INOVA Hospital Foundation Family, to include the entire staff of Fair Oaks Hospital and Loudoun Hospital. Over the last 2 weeks we have fed over 3000+ Medical Professional Heros. 
 
We couldn’t be more excited to be planning our next Hospital Heros feeding, the INOVA Fairfax Hospital & Medical Campus here in Fairfax. This undertaking is a three day feeding, of over 3,000+ Medical Heros. To undertake this feat we are in need of Community Sponsors. 
 
 
Sincerely,
Greg Crawford
General Manager, NOVA Royals Baseball Club

Burke Field Rehabilitation

On 5/13/20, Fairfax Little League coordinated with the Burke Conservancy and CAS Property Services of Chantilly to perform a field rehabilitation at Burke Field. Through these efforts we were able to level and seed throughout the infield and outfield, repaired the fence, and improved the bullpen gravelling. The investment and labor that went into this was much needed and should give the players a much better playing experience for years to come.

However, these efforts will be futile if people continue to trespass on the field at this time. Fairfax Little League, Burke Conservancy, and CAS Property Services are asking for a commitment of all families to allow the field rehabilitation to be fulfilled. We are asking for families to stay off the field, and ask if you see anyone on the field to ask them to exit the field so our investment will be worthwhile. 

This short time commitment should allow for many years of better playing experiences for our children. Please help Fairfax Little League, Burke Conservancy and CAS Property Services by staying off the field.

Season Update

 

FXLL parents, players, coaches, umpires, snack bar workers, etc.,

As of May 8th, 2020, FXLL has still NOT given up hope on having a baseball season in 2020.

Many of you have heard that Little League Baseball and Softball will NOT have state, regional, or World Series tournaments in 2020. However, they have left the decision up to individual leagues under the guidance of their state and local governments and health officials about whether or not to try and resume a season this year. Little League International has also encouraged local district all-star tournaments, if possible.

We remain in communication with local government officials, and with the other Virginia District 10 leagues and our Little League District Administrator regarding when and how we may be able to resume baseball this year, to hopefully include all-star games at the district level at the end of the season. These plans remain tentative for now, but we are exploring the option of a combined summer/fall season and are working to fill in the details of what this might look like. League ages and registration levels would remain the same as they would have been for the Spring season - meaning if your player was league age 12 on their spring registration, they can continue to play as a league age 12 player through the end of the 2020 season.

If we are able to proceed, we will reach out again prior to the resumption of any season with more details about what you can all expect, and to confirm your interest in participating. Depending upon response, we will likely need to adjust teams to rebalance rosters. We will continue to update you all until a definite decision is made, and we appreciate your patience and understanding as we try to decide the best way to proceed.

We understand these are hard and trying times for all. If you need a refund now, please ask. We will grant all refunds at 100% of fees paid. If you can wait until we have a final plan, that would be appreciated.

Be safe and healthy. More soon.

FXLL Board of Directors

2019 Fairfax NL 8/9 Minors Champs

Congratulations to Fairfax National's 8/9 tournament team, which won the 8/9 Special Minors championship! The team went undefeated through the four games, and never trailed during the tournament. The championship game was hard fought, going into extra innings before Fairfax National scored three runs in the top of the 7th to win 6-3 over CYA. This is the second year in a row that the Fairfax National 8/9 team won its tournament.  Coach Matt Oliveri, has now lead his team to victory in this tournament in back to back seasons! The Special Minors tournaments are composed of primarily Little League AAA players playing against other teams from across Little League District 10, and were created to give players and coaches experience playing in a Little League-style tournament to gain experience for future Majors tournaments.
