Majors (Ages 10-12*)
This 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.
Players should focus on refining their skills with a strong emphasis on consistency. Often the difference between an average player and a good player is the ability to consistently execute the required skills.
