Bret Harte Little League


Majors (age 10-12)

The Little League Baseball Division (also known as the Major Division) is for boys and girls ages 10 -12. The diamond used is a 60-foot diamond and the pitching distance is 46 feet. The local league has an option to choose a Tournament Team (or “All Stars”) of 10-12-year-old from within this division, and the team may enter the International Tournament. 

It is a requirement of eligibility for all player candidates to attend at least 50 percent of all tryout sessions so that managers of Major Division teams can properly assess the ability of each player and give each player a proper grade based on ability. If a candidate cannot attend 50 percent of the tryouts, and provides and excuse which is acceptable to the board of directors, the candidate may be drafted/placed on a team.

Opportunity for a child to experience, grow, and excel on and off the field is what makes Little League unique. It begins with a child’s parents, or legal guardians, deciding to trust the volunteers in the community to create and operate a safe, healthy, and well-run local program.

Parents are strongly encouraged to become involved in Little League. After completing a Little League volunteer application and passing a required national background check, parents may become involved in practices, and be eligible as coaches, managers, umpires, local league board members and other volunteer positions within the league.
