Majors

Description The Majors division is the highest division played at Myrtle Park. The Majors division uses full Little League rules with live pitching, LL stealing and no run limits on innings. Games in Majors are scored, and season standings are tracked. All teams qualify for the playoffs – with the top 2 teams in the playoffs competing in the championship game. A Majors game lasts approximately 2 hours (or occasionally longer). Umpires are used in Majors games.
Grade/Age Grade 4/5/6/7 (baseball age 10, 11 and 12). All 12 year old players automatically qualify to play in Majors regardless of their experience or assessment scores. Baseball age 11 and 10 year old players may tryout for placement in the Majors division and will be placed in either Majors or AAA based on their assessment scores.
Location Majors games are played on the Majors field in Myrtle Park.
Games Majors teams play twice per week. One game on a Saturday, and one game during the week on either Tuesday or Thursday. The schedule will vary from week to week to allow all teams to play one another. Rained out games are rescheduled by the division coordinator. Majors teams also play an Interlock game against other North Shore Little Leagues every 2nd Sunday.
Practices Majors teams practice once per week usually on a Sunday. Teams in this division may also book sessions in the Myrtle Park batting cage and additional practices during the week. To book an extra practice session please email field_booking@msll.ca
Teams Teams are made up of 11-12 players. Assessments for all guaranteed Majors players (12 year olds and players who have already played in the Majors division) and 11 or 10 year old players who wish to tryout for Majors are held in February. Teams are formed via a draft process. The draft is used to try to build balanced teams. As a result friend requests can only be considered in extreme circumstances. If you have a specific player request, please contact the player agent prior to the draft.
Uniform Majors players receive a team jersey, team belt and baseball cap which must be worn to all games. Players return their jersey and belt at the end of the season, but get to keep their cap. Player must provide their own grey baseball pants. The pants must have belt loops.

Call Ups If a Majors teams has less than 10 players available for a game, they may call up a player from the Minors AAA division. The player agent will provide the Majors coaches with a call up list of Minors AAA players who may be called up to the Majors division. When possible please contact the player’s coach to organize the call up – however in the case of a last minute call up you may contact the player directly. A Majors team may only use the same call up player 2 times during the season. The division coordinator must be notified whenever a call up player is used.
