Baseball- Majors

Majors Baseball

The Majors baseball division promotes competition to a higher degree as compared to the Minor League. Within this more competitive environment, the emphasis remains on improving baseball skills, building individual self-esteem, promoting team camaraderie and emphasizing fair play. The division is designed to be both the satisfying culmination of some players' Little League careers and to prepare other players for higher levels of play including advancement in Little League Tournament play (or “All Stars”) at the end of the season and readiness to move up to play on the full 90 foot diamond.

In Majors, players tend to specialize at particular defensive positions, even during the regular season. Although this of course helps coaches field competitive teams for interlocking play, the main reason is to protect children from physical injury and embarrassing or unpleasant experiences.

The Minors level is open to Majors-age players who are still learning baseball fundamentals and not drafted to a Majors team.
