Fall Ball provides additional training and skill development opportunities to players of all ages.  Fall Ball is intended to be non-competitive and focuses on fundamentals and preparation of player transition to their level during next spring season.

Practices at Ellerhorst fields will be on weekdays and Saturdays. Games will be scheduled with other leagues as available and played on Saturdays.  No games are official, no official score will be kept, and no standings.

Each player will receive a shirt and the League will provide balls, batting helmets, and catcher equipment.

The season will start in early September and end in November for Tee Ball (age 5-7) $50, Softball (age 7-14) $75, and Baseball (age 7-14) $75. 

Number of slots on teams and age groups within each division will depend on number of players registering and how fit into divisions/age groups.

Medical Release form is required to be completed and sign by parent/guardian and submitted before player is permitted to engage in any Fall Ball season practices or games.

Manager/Coach Application and Little League Volunteer Application forms are required for volunteers interested in Fall Ball season with picture of driver’s license and SSN on the volunteer application for background checks.

Thank you for a great 2016 Spring Season!

Pinole Hercules Little League would like to thank you for joining our membership at last Friday’s closing ceremony.   

As we complete the 55th year of PHLL, we sincerely appreciate the spirit and support everyone brings in providing an opportunity for the children to enjoy the Little League experience.

The turnout was great with lots of family, friends, fun, food, and a movie to complete the evening.

Thank you to all the volunteers who participated in making our closing ceremony possible.

For those who were unable to attend, below is an excerpt of the closing ceremony speech by PHLL President Valerie Potts.

Enjoy the summer and we’ll see you at the fields.  Thank you.


First – Let’s thank El Nino for not raining on closing ceremony!!

This spring we signed up over 300 kids.  We fielded 25 teams that played a combined 300+ regular season games.  And while the regular season is over, we continue on into the postseason, with Tournament of Champion and All-Star teams playing through June and into July.  

Congratulations to Jim Petrovits 50/70 team on the end of their TOC season ... they lost a very close one.  We wish the other teams good luck in their TOC ... Chris Russell, Ted Turner, Matt Avery, Valerie Potts, Jessie VanSlochteren.

Some Achievements from this year ... we've created a new and improved website, replaced aging grounds equipment, and made improvements to our fields.  The Snack Shack was reworked and streamlined this year, and we participated in the first annual Major League Baseball Junior Home Run Derby thanks to Mike Hernandez. Congratulations to:

Stephan Sanchez,  Nicholas Fey,  Kirbin Lum,  Ronnie Yanez, Aaron Ornelas,  Micah Sephan

We will be hosting two Tournament of Champions games next week – Minor Softball on Tuesday and Senior Softball on Thursday here at Ellerhorst @ 5:30 pm and would like to invite everyone to come down and cheer on our teams.

Thanks to all the volunteers who gave so much during the season.  We are a league built entirely on volunteers and need help from everyone to continue to make the league better year after year.

We would like to thank membership on their support, input and suggestions for continual improvement of our Little League program.

HUGE THANK YOU to all the coaches and managers for their time and commitment to players.

Also, we can’t forget to thank all of our sponsors for supporting our great league, our dedicated umpires for covering numerous games and never missing a call, our mowing team, and all the volunteers from teams who worked snack shack.

Special kudos to Anna for getting so many sponsors and making sure the snack shack was opened this year, and Larissa for making sure all league information was passed onto the team parents.

One final note, Fall Ball on-line registration is in August - starts at $50! We are looking for coaches, if you are interest, please speak to Arnold.

Thank you everyone for coming out this season and making it memorable. We do all this all "For The Kids!” There is cake in the back by the snack shack for everyone.
