Majors Overview

The Majors Division is a competitive play division for boys. The pitching is at a distance of 46 feet and the bases are 60 feet apart. Kids ages 10-12 year-olds play Majors based on Skill Evaluation Ranking during the spring. 

The Major Division is the top division still played on the Little League sized field. This is the division that you see on ESPN at the Little League World Series. The level of baseball is nothing short of amazing at this age. The kids may be trying to look as cool as Mike Trout or Bryce Harper when they turn the double play or hit one out of the park but they are smiling on the inside and so will you when you watch a Majors game at Cactus Foothills North Little League.

Experienced Kids have developed significantly by this age, however first-timers are always welcomed and encouraged to join. The Major division is a tremendous value as your child will play a lot of games, upwards of 20+ per season. The pitching gets faster and the kids baseball IQs go through the roof as they really get a handle on the game and sometimes make it look effortless. 

All Stars are selected at the end of the year and the kids try their best to qualify for the Little League World Series. 

Major games are played on our pristine Major field which is something you have to see for yourself. Come down and take a look.

Each player is guaranteed 6 outs and 1 at-bat in Majors. Majors bats the 9 players at a time based on who is in that inning.

Majors baseball costs $160 for the 2018 Fall Ball season.
