Players will pitch from a distance of 42'. Each game will have an umpire. Practice is based upon the coaches but typically is not more than two days per week. Games will be twice a week, End of the season tournament may be held.

Majors
Majors is for players ages 10 to 12 and is a competitive level of play where scores and standings are kept. Majors 70 allows the players to experience “real baseball” at a younger age. Players will pitch from a distance of 50'. Players will play on a 70'’ diamond, leadoff, steal, run on dropped 3rd strike and other rules, full baseball rules. Practice depends on the coach but is typically two days a week or more. Games are twice a week, End of the season tournament may be held.
