Welcome to HLL
Hillsborough Little League (HLL) provides fun and rewarding Little League experiences for boys and girls in Hillsborough and adjacent areas of San Mateo, Burlingame and Millbrae. Roughly 700 boys and girls between the ages of 5 and 13 participate in the league each year.
Hillsborough Little League has a proud tradition of excellence in both regular season and All-Star play. We have won over 25 District and Sectional All-Star titles since our inception in 1993.
HLL All-Stars Wrap Up Outstanding Seasons
Fans of HLL's All-Star teams have had plenty to cheer about in the past, but we've never seen a year like 2017 before!
Both the 9‑10 and 10‑11 All‑Stars went all the way to the NorCal State finals, collecting District 52 and Section 3 banners along the way. Add to that the 50‑70 All‑Stars' D52 win, and you have an unprecedented season of success.
The 9‑10s got to the NorCal State tournament finals before ultimately losing to River Park (Fresno). HLL played them three times, first losing 7‑5, then winning 4‑0, and finally coming up short 10‑7 in the winner-take-all championship game. Earlier in the tournament, HLL had defeated teams from Los Gatos, Turlock, and Maidu (Roseville). Including the earlier district and sectional tournaments, the 9‑10 team's final record was 12‑2, and they outscored their opponents 128‑50.
The loss to River Park evoked memories of the last time these two leagues faced off, in the 2007 10‑11 State Championship finals. River Park won that series as well by defeating a previously unbeaten HLL team 10‑6 and 8‑4. Other than this year, that was the only other time a team from Hillsborough had gone as far as the state finals.
The 10‑11s also made it to the NorCal State tournament championship round, losing out to Tri-City (Rocklin) 9‑1 in the finals. They had earlier eliminated teams from Redwood Empire (Eureka), Porterville, and Almaden. The 10‑11 team's cumulative final record was 11‑3, and they outscored their opponents 98‑60.
Congratulations to HLL's All-Star teams for their outstanding achievements!
