The Major League is focused on our 5th and 6th grade players. It will provide a confidence building transition year before moving to the “Big Field” in the Suburban League in 7th grade. Unlike past seasons, where the 5th and 6th graders played, in the Majors, on the 46/60 fields, our new Major League will play on 50/70 transition fields.
Jefferson Field (located behind Jefferson School), will be our primary transition field. In addition to a slightly greater pitching distance and longer base paths, the new Major League will also offer a more advanced set of playing rules (e.g., base runners are permitted to “lead” before a pitch is delivered). We intend to offer coaches and players additional training and clinic opportunities so that all participants are comfortable with these rules before the season begins.
Cost of this program is $200. Team hat and jersey are provided.
