GHLL Spring Season

Final Determination




Golden Hill Little League Families :


As mentioned in our last couple posts, our Board has been working vigorously to keep abreast of guidance from Little League International, all levels of government, and leading public health resources to determine when and how we could resume baseball activities safely.  Unfortunately, the length of the Safer at Home order has already eaten away the vast majority of our season and it has become clear that we will not be able to conduct our 2020 Spring Season in the manner we had envisioned.


In addition to weighing the issues associated with keeping players and parents healthy, our Board has had to grapple with the economic impacts of this crisis.  Our league’s finances rely on revenues (snack shacks, spirit wear, All-Stars, etc) and fundraisers (fireworks stand, closing ceremonies, etc) generated during our season to sustain our operations and maintain the fields at Unocal.  Without those revenues, there is simply no way to achieve a break-even budget this year.  In short, like most organizations, GHLL has been hit hard by COVID-19.


Still, through the planning and hard work of GHLL’s past leadership, we are fortunate to have at least a modest reserve that will help sustain us.  As we seek to keep our organization healthy so that we can resume baseball activities as soon as it is safe and allowed, we understand that we must settle accounts with our 2020 Spring Season registrants.  At this time, we can offer two options with regard to the fees that were paid in association for a 2020 Spring Season registrant :


  1. Donate to Golden Hill Little League
  2. Request a prorated refund


To select the option that is best for you and your family, please click the button at the bottom of this post. Please note, non-action will result in a donation to the league.  



Ironically, this email comes as there is movement toward “reopening” businesses and other public spaces and certainly that provides great hope that we can resume baseball activities at some point relatively soon.  For our part, we have begun planning various options for a fall season as well as other baseball activities that we may be able to implement as a bridge before that.  Please stay tuned for updates!


In closing, I want to express on behalf of our entire Board of Directors our most sincere wishes for the continued health of our GHLL family.    While we are sad to have missed so much baseball, we are encouraged by your support, and we are hopeful to return to the field in the not-too-distant future.




Best wishes and stay safe,


Golden Hill Little League Board

Pictures :  Pictures are completed and are available for Team Parents to safely pickup and distribute. Make-up pictures are still in process as the vendor has been delayed because of state ordered closure.

When Can We Play :  We are working hard to create a program this Fall that will offer the children of Golden Hill the opportunity to play nearly as much as they would have experienced this Spring. We are developing best practices and COVID-19 safety guidelines in advance so that, if the opportunity presents itself, we can comply with local & Little League requirements that will keep our kids safe. In addition, we are working with the City of Fullerton to obtain additional fields that would normally be granted to traditional fall sports. Rest assured, we are doing all we can to offer our kids the ability to get back out there to see their friends, get exercise, and have the safest way possible!

More FAQs will be posted soon as we continue to navigate through these administrative and financial matters.
