Majors

Updated Thursday April 18, 2019 by Scott Kay.

Majors Division

Age: 11 & 12 year olds (all 12 year olds are automatically in)

Division Coordinator: Ray Tarantola

Division Assistant Coordinator: Cynthia Welter

Number of Games: Varies based on the number of teams in the league.

Duration of Season: April through June including holiday weekends; generally weeknights and some weekends.

How Teams are selected: Teams are drafted by the coaches. Teams are redrafted every season. Players participate in a skills session before the season and the coaches meet with the coordinators to draft the teams. Players (11 year olds)  that are not selected to play Majors will play in Triple A. The Draft Committee determines the age breakdown of each team. 12 year olds returning to Majors from the year before are encouraged to go to the skills sessions, but are not required to.

Basic Skill Focus / Expectations: Majors is a highly competitive division. 11 year old players are selected to play in this division.

Hitting: A full batting roster is used in every game. Bats must have a USA Baseball Stamp with a maximum 2 5/8” barrel (see  https://www.baberuthleague.org/bat-rules.aspx)

Playing Time / Positions Played: This is a highly competitive division. All teams make the playoffs and seeding is based on record. Every player must play at least 4 innings in the field.

***New for 2019 -- Majors will be played on a 50/70 diamond
