Majors is a baseball league for players in 6th or 7th grade during the registration period and who are not playing on a traveling team or in another league (Babe Ruth, Cal Ripken, Little League, Junior League, VFW, etc.). Playing for a school team is fine.
The goal of the program is to provide a positive environment in which participants enjoy playing baseball and continue to improve skills. Teams compete with surrounding communities.
Typically, games are played on Monday and Wednesday evenings. Games will likely start the week before Memorial Day and will end with a post season tournament in the latter half of July. Teams typically practice once or twice per week and play two games per week. Practice time/locations will be set after coordinating with coaches.
Volunteers are essential to the program. Please consider volunteering to be a coach or team manager. If you intend to be a head coach, an assistant coach, or a team manager, please indicate this when you register your child.
To balance teams, we will have all parents register their child and give an honest grading of their child's baseball skills.
1 - 5 Rating (1 = Very little experience, 5 = Above average for age) in the following skills:
Throwing/Pitching - Accuracy & Speed
Catching - Grounders & Popups
REGISTRATION FOR 2021 SEASON
The League Director will be responsible for rostering teams.
Players are generally assigned to teams in the following manner:
Satisfy player family relationships.
Satisfy player/coach preference (up to 2 requests) in order by registration date and time.
Assign players based on parent evaluation & grade.
Assign any remaining players whereever the player fits.
Ideally all preferences could be satisfied. Unfortunately, this is difficult due to constraints such as balancing the total number of players on each team. Registering early can significantly contribute to having preferences satisfied. In any case, please encourage players to form additional friendships this summer.
BECOMING A HEAD COACH OR ASSISTANT COACH
Volunteers are essential to the program. Please consider volunteering to be a coach or team manager. If you intend to be a head coach, an assistant coach, or a team manager, please indicate this when you register your child. Head Coaches can have up to 2 Assistant Coaches on their team, so please indicate this during Registration as well.
Note: Each player is responsible for having baseball pants. The rules dictate a team must have matching uniforms, therefore plain, grey pants are required.
The league provides:
Each player must provide:
Players may use any baseball bat where the weight to length differential is -10 or heavier (i.e. a 31 inch bat must be 21 ounces or heavier) and it meets the following safety requirements:
Small Barrel Bat (2¼ inches in diameter)
Big Barrel Bat (larger than 2¼ inches in diameter)
Typically, refunds will only be given if your child has not participated in any games and there are sufficient players on the team. Refunds are subject to a $10.00 processing fee and other costs already incurred. For example, the cost of a uniform when it has already been ordered. Refunds, as well as the amount of the refund, are left to the discretion of the league director on a case by case basis.
