The AHYAA Majors League baseball program is for students in 5th and 6th Grade. This league builds on the basics taught in the Minor League, and incorporates additional baseball elements such as expanded base stealing, balks, longer base paths, a pitching mound, and no limit to the number of runs scored in a given inning.
We do keep score of the games, team records, and standings, and all teams will participate in the end-of-season playoffs. Managers will select their teams via a city wide draft where there are no geographical boundaries. Unlike the lower leagues, teams will be comprised of players from the North, South & Central areas.
All parents are asked to participate in some manner (coaching, coordinating team activities, field set-up, etc...). Games are intended to be fun for all players, no matter what their talent level, and should serve as a foundation for all kids moving up to the Varsity level.
Bat Rule: Players may use either metal or wood bats, players must use bats imprinted with the words “Approved for Little League” or words substantially similar thereto, barrel size may not exceed 2¼ inches in diameter. Bats stamped with “USABat” will be allowed.
Registration deadline is March 1st, any sign ups after this date are subject to being placed on a waiting list and are not guaranteed placement on a team.
