Majors Division (11-12 Year Olds)
Majors is a developmental division in which players continue to advance their baseball skills, as well as continue to improve pitching fundamentals. Games and practices are held on a 50/70 field.
As an instructional division, coaches will continue to focus on teaching the fundamentals, teamwork, good sportsmanship and positive reinforcement. Although competition is important, it is secondary to providing players with an excellent foundation and appreciation for the game.
Boys ages 11 and 12 are eligible. Teams will be selected through a draft.
Spring and Fall Season Overviews:
Teams will typically play two games and practice once during the week. The spring season will conclude with playoffs to determine the league champion. For the fall season, practices and games typically start in early September and run through October. Games are 6 innings with a 2-hour hard time limit. No inning will be started after 1 hour and 30 minutes.
In addition to playing facilities, NMYBBSB will provide players with a jersey and hat. Bats must be USABat certified. Players are expected to have their own glove and will need to wear long pants and a protective cup. Coaches may ask that parents buy certain color pants and socks to coordinate with a team uniform.
