Jan 01 - Mar 12
From Jan 02, 2016 to Mar 13, 2016
This division is designed to introduce the players to a more competitive brand of baseball and put to use the skills they have learned from the instructional leagues, such as the Minor and Instructional divisions. Major League players range from 10 to 12 years of age.
The number of teams in the Majors fluctuates from year to year, depending on the number of new players who sign up, returning Major League players and the number of players moving up from the Minors. Depending on the number of teams, there may be two divisions with playoffs.
This division usually starts at the end of April/early May and play approximately 16 games, weather permitting. All games are played on Monday's and Thursday's. Weekends if necessary.
There is an end-of-season interleague tournment played for the Major division, seeded from regular season standings. This occurs at the last weekend of June or beginning of July.
There is an All Star tournament that players can be selected to. These tournaments usually start around the first week of July.
Criteria to play -
1)All players must be at least 10 years of age and no older than 12 years of age.
2)All 10 year-olds can try out (they can also elect to stay on the Minor AAA team they were on last year) prior to the season. There is no guarantee a player will be drafted into the Majors. If a player is not drafted, he will play in the Minors that season. All other players who have never played in the Major Division (11 & 12 years of age) must try-out prior to the season. Returning players do not have to try-out.
3)Once you are drafted to a team, you will stay with that team throughout your Major Division career.
4)To be considered for the All-Star team, besides meeting age and residency rules for regular season, each player must participate in 50% of the league games.
