League Format

The league is separated into Major and Minor leagues. Players will only play in one league.

  • Major (Travel Baseball): The Major league consists of 13’s, 14’s, and 15’s advancing teams and a 13-15 non-advancing team.
  • Minor (League Baseball): The Minor league consists of league teams with players ages 13-15. Depending on the number of participants, this league could be divided into a 13-year-old minor division and a 14-15-year-old minor division.

Tryouts are used to evaluate players and place them on teams based on a variety of categories. The criteria used to select these teams include: attitude, attendance, sportsmanship, versatility, and skill/ability. The Minor league will divide players to balance skills amongst the teams.
