Majors Baseball

What is the Majors Division?

  • The Majors Division is currently the highest level of baseball offered at West LA Little League.  Majors, while still instructional, is a competitive division.  There are a number of important considerations to understand as you enter Majors.  In Little League, Majors, as a competitive division, has the least restrictive minimum play rules for players in terms of both innings to be played and positions to be played.  It is to be expected that a majority of players on a team will sit out multiple defensive innings per game.  The division is typically reserved for players Little League age 12 and 11, who played in the division previously or who are progressing from our AAA Division based on the player’s portfolio of work with the League and their Spring 2022 evaluation.

  • Our goal is to program a 20 game regular season for Majors leading to a double-elimination tournament at the end of the regular season.  We anticipate that evaluations for Majors will occur on January 8 and 9, 2022.  Following evaluations, which all players are required to attend, the Division will host a draft on January 13 and practices will begin on Sunday, January 16.  During the season, the League will be off the week of April 11 and we anticipate Spring play will conclude on or around May 25.  

  • The Majors Division will provide an opportunity to each player to be at the field four times per week, with two practices and two games.  Teams will have a fixed weekday practice, likely on either a Monday or Thursday, as well as a rotating Sunday practice beginning as early as 8:00 a.m. and ending as late as 8:00 p.m. Weekday games will be played on either Tuesday or Wednesday evenings and weekend games will be played on either Friday or Saturday evenings.  Participating in the Majors Division is an immersive experience and designed to be a capstone to your player’s journey at West LA Little League

Information about player evaluations, January 8th and 9th.

  • Every player must be evaluated.  Your player’s assigned evaluation time will be sent out to you by email around January 3rd.  Please do your very best to keep to the assigned evaluation time.  Over the weekend our team of volunteers will evaluate hundreds of players.  The groupings are determined in order to efficiently and fairly give each player an opportunity to showcase their skill set.  If you absolutely cannot make your evaluation date, the League will consider adding a makeup evaluation day.  However, if a no evaluation can be conducted, the player will not be eligible for the Majors draft.  Please have your player ready to warm-up at least 20 minutes before your scheduled evaluation time.  Preparation is crucial to give your player the opportunity to perform their best.  Additionally, please ensure that your player is properly equipped to take the field.  All players must come prepared with their own baseball cap, baseball glove, USA Baseball approved baseball bat, non-metal cleats, and athletic support and cup for boys, and batting helmet.  Players will be evaluated on all aspects of baseball including catching, throwing, base running and hitting.

  • You can help in other ways.  During evaluations we ask that parents and siblings please stay off the fields and out of the dugouts so that the League volunteers may give their full attention to the players.  Please remember that the Parent Code of Conduct is as applicable during evaluations as it is during the regular season.  We look forward to you all joining us and cheering on your players as they take the field again for the first time this season.

Information about team assignments.

  • Team assignments in the Majors Division are through a draft which is scheduled for Thursday January 13.  Following the League’s evaluations, the Majors Commissioner along with the League’s President, Vice President and Player Agent will determine which evaluated players will be draft eligible.

Registration for the Majors Division does not guaranty placement. 

  • Following the draft, you will get an email with team assignment from your team’s manager.  Don’t worry if you do not hear from the League before then.  Please know that our entirely volunteer League staff is working as quickly as possible to finalize teams to get the kids on the field.
