Montalvo Little League Baseball (MLL)

Everything to know about the Montalvo Little League (MLL) is right here on this page.

MLL is an officially sanctioned league of Little Leauge Baseball. It's a baseball league for boys and girls ages 5 - 14 who live in and around the Montalvo Little League district boundaries (see below) that plays between the months of March through June, with All-Stars extending the time of play for certain select players for at least one tournament and maybe more. For the 12 & Under (11 & 12 only) all-star team and the 13-14 year old all-star team this could culminate as late as August if they were to qualify for the Little League World Series.

Hitting Coaches in the Area

Fortunately for you, if this is your league and you want to hit better than you do now or need more personalized instruction than your team coaches can give you you have Andy Collins, the Internet Hitting Coach, available to you. He lives in Ventura and has a batting cage at his house (fortunately for you, right across the street from Montalvo Little League) or you can work out right at the local parks.

Phone: (805) 642-5827

Pitching Coaches in the Area

Coach Andy also works with Little League age pitchers establishing proper throwing mechanics for acurate and safe throwing. Only fast balls and change ups are taught along with pitch location and the mental aspects of pitching for the more advanced players.

High School Baseball in the Area

Three of the local high schools benefit the most from the Montalvo Little League program.

They are Buena High and Ventura High which are public schools, and St. Bonaventure, which is private. Each of these schools have Varsity and Junior Varsity and Freshman baseball teams.

If you want to play baseball in high school, but want to attend one of the other high schools in the area, such as Foothill, Pacific or El Camino, you need to go to the school who's district you're in and sign up to play with them. (These are different districts than the one for Montalvo.)

This is a perfectly legitimate way to extend the love of baseball you received from Montalvo Little League Baseball.

College Baseball in the Area

Ventura College is the only college within Ventura to have a baseball program. They are a junior (2 year) college. Recently, they've had a number of successful years winning their league.
