District 56's Fall Ball baseball season kicked off with GHLL team drafts on Monday, August 27th. Teams will start practicing in the coming weeks and players should be contacted soon by their coaches. If you have any questions about your player's status, please contact our Fall Ball Commissioner, Jon Ricklef. Fall Ball is a training & development program for GHLL Divisions Single A to Juniors. Teams practice only once per week with games on Sunday afternoons.
Games Begin Sunday, September 9th.
Our 9/10 and 11/12 All Star teams made a historic run this year. They both brought home Section 5 championships and excelled in the Southern California State tournaments. This was the first Section 5 banner for Golden Hill in the 11/12 division since 1984, and only second ever in the official Little League division. It was also only our second Section 5 championship in the 9/10 division and our highest finish (2nd place) ever in State at any level since the 1985 Junior team that went to the World Series. Great job boys!!!

Little League baseball, which began in 1939, now has over 2.5 million children participating in all 50 states. Organized sports teach kids teamwork and self-esteem, and give some kids a lifelong passion. Baseball, more than any other sport, allows for the opportunity for even the weakest participants to be in a position to win a big game for his or her team.
These are memories people never forget.
Parents, enjoy it all! Soon enough our kids will be grown and all that we will be left with is the memory of a sunny Saturday afternoon at the park with hundreds of kids in their baseball uniforms beaming with excitement and having the time of their lives!
If you would like to volunteer and be a part of Golden Hill Little League, we have many positions available. Your child's team needs volunteers, and the league needs volunteers and our concession stands need volunteers. Thank you to everyone involved with Golden Hill Little League for making this a wonderful time!
Home of the 2017 9/10, 11/12 & 13/14 District 56 and 13/14 Section 5 Champions !!!
