The Little League Baseball Division (also known as the Major Division) is for boys and girls ages 9-12.
Barrington Little League limits its Majors Division to 10, 11 and 12 year olds. 10 year olds who play in the Majors division must be evaluated on evaluation day and then must be drafted onto a team by a selecting Manager.
The diamond used is a 60-foot diamond and the pitching distance is 46 feet.
At the end of the season, Barrington Little League selects a Tournament Team (or "All Stars") of 11-12-year-olds from within this division, and the team is entered into the International Tournament.
Method of Play
All children must play at least 4 innings, and bat at least once during a regular six inning game.
1. Bat the lineup
2. Each game will be six innings or 2 hours. The umpire shall keep the game clock and shall start with the call of "Play Ball". Start time will be noted in both team’s scorebooks. The score at the time limit shall be the final score regardless of innings played.
- The last inning will be declared at the one hour, forty-five minute mark and the inning must be completed (home team bats if applicable). The last inning shall require three outs. For the purpose of time limits, the umpire must declare "Last Inning" at the beginning of an inning.
- Note: There are 9 position players playing 6 innings for a total of 54 player innings. A 12 player roster would mean 6 players would play 4 innings and 6 players would play 5 innings totaling 54 innings.
