Major League (ages 11-12)
The Major Division is for boys and girls ages 11-12. The diamond used is a 60-foot
diamond and the pitching distance is 46 feet.
Strong fundamental skills and team strategies are stressed in this more competitive
level. A strong commitment to the program is expected. Players will use and enhance
the skills used at the minor league levels so that their team can be competitive with
other teams. Scores and standing are kept for a year-end tournament for all teams.
Also, it gives children of this age the opportunity to experience tournament
competition, as the league may enter one team in the International Tournament. The
culmination of the International Tournament is the Little League Baseball World
Series, featuring teams from around the globe. There is also an 10- & 11-year-old
District Tournament team that competes up to state level.
