The Majors Division is for players who are 11- or 12-years old on April 30th of the current season. Team placement is based on skills evaluation scores.
Players are distributed evenly to teams according to scores. The Majors Division uses paid umpires based on availability. If the league does not have enough umpires, parent umpires will be used. This level provides the most competitive level of regular season baseball. Game scores are kept, standings are kept, and the tournament seeding is based on standings. Field positions are narrowed for each player, batting order and field time will be determined to optimize competition.
Coaches are still encouraged to rotate players among 2 or 3 field positions to continue player education. The strike zone is narrowed further.
For the entire season, teams will have a mix of practices and games that will be scheduled by the League. This will allow for continued development, while minimizing extra time demands on families. Players will be expected to participate in the scheduled practices, and attendance and attitude may affect play time and field positions. Attendance is required for at least 85% of all games and practices for the benefit of the team and to ensure that all players progress together.
