Buckeye Field is a picturesque playing surface that is the pride of Lafayette Little League. However, what makes it truly special is the community it fosters. The league's volunteers - 25 board members, 50 managers, and 100 coaches - work tirelessly to teach children about integrity, resiliency, courage, determination, and teamwork.
Even the league's 700+ families contribute with volunteer jobs. Lafayette Little League is run 100% by volunteers. Umpires teach respect while overseeing games, and sponsors provide crucial financial support. The league is a community where parents and children forge new friendships while spending time together, creating memories that will last a lifetime.
Lafayette Little League hopes that all families will cherish the special memories created during the baseball season and that the players of today will bring their own children back to Buckeye to play catch on the same dirt and grass where they played. The venue is not just about the game but about creating a foundation of character and values that children will need to succeed as young adults.

Both games on Saturday were highlighted by strong offense and tight defense.
The day got started with the Majors game where the undefeated Pirates took on the Phillies. Teams showed power at the plate with Jake Mikalis of the Phillies and Patton Bittner of the Pirates hitting home runs.
In the AA game, there was just enough offense to push the A's ahead of the Padres late. Pitchers for both teams worked out of bases loaded jams to see the championship game conclude on a strike out in the bottom of the 5th.
In a tight duel on Sunday, the Yankees edged out the Nationals by a final score of 5-3 to win the LLL AAA Championships.
Come to Buckeye this summer during the District 4 Tournament June 28-July 9 to cheer on Lafayette's teams.
Bats and helmets with appropriate face guards are to be provided by parents for each player, along with an appropriate baseball glove (mitt) and non-metal cleats. The league will furnish a jersey, pants, socks, hat and a belt (belts are not used in Instructional).
All bats must have USA designation and ALL batting helmets must have a FULL FACE GUARD
Lafayette Little League sadly lost a strong supporter of its Challenger program with the recent passing of Challenger parent Diane Hong. The mother of a current Challenger player, Diane's family has been involved with the program for several years. Diane always helped at practice with calm patience, a positive spirit, and a warm smile. She will be greatly missed by the Challenger program and the entire Lafayette Little League Community.
Friends have established a GoFundMe account for the family's children,

The Special Education Enrichment Development Foundation of Lafayette named Lafayette Little League its 2019 Community Award recipient in recognition of LLL's Challenger Baseball Program.
Thank you to SEED, Rosemary Kirbach, Steve Parlett, and Skip Tague for all of their work to make the Challenger program the pride of Lafayette Little League.
MAY THE FOURTH BE WITH YOU!
We are back!
After a very successful 2023 baseball season which saw a lot of games played here in Lafayette, summer was equally productive and Lafayette teams competed well. It began with our AAA Yankees winning the District 4 Tournament of Champions. Lafayette's 11YO All-Star Team won District 4 then the Section 1 Tournament and went deep in the NorCal divisional playoffs. Our 10YOAS and 9YO Future Stars teams each won their respective divisions in D4. For the first time ever, our AB House teams formed an All-Star team who entered the Juniors All-Star tournament and had a great time. All of this is indicative of a strong baseball program where players can participate on a recreational level and then turn it up and compete at another level over the summer.
Our Board and Committee are already hard at work planning for the 2024 season. Registration is open now for Advanced Baseball and will open in November 2023 for Little League baseball. Jamboree and opening weekend is scheduled for March 2nd & 3rd.
We look forward to seeing everyone out on the fields soon!
President, Lafayette Little League
