Southeast Portland Little League

Major Baseball (League Age 11-12)

The Little League Baseball Division is also known as the Major Division. Majors is a competitive division and assessments are held before each season to determine placement on the majors team.

SEPLL offers Major Baseball for boys and girls League Age 11 through 12. Players League age 10 may attend assessments and request playing in Majors. Please use the League Age Chart to determine your child's League Age.

Please understand that we do not guarantee players League Age's 10 and 11 a spot in the Major Division. Most players age 10 will play in the Minor Division. A player's placement in the Major Division is based on several factors including the number of players registered by age group, the number of teams in the division, and player assessments. If your child is not placed on a team in the Major Division, he or she will be placed in the Minor Division. Final decisions on player placement are determined by the Player Agent and Board.

Team Formation

Major teams may have from 12 to 15 players. The selection of players for the teams in Major must comply with the Little League Draft Selection System. This is done to ensure a competitive balance among the teams. SEPLL does not accept requests to play with friends or a specific coach.

Team Practices

Teams may begin practicing in about mid-March. How often a team practices is up to the manager. Teams generally practice about 2-3 times per week until the regular season begins in early April. After the regular season begins, team coaches determine the frequency of practices.

Team Games

Teams play 2-3 games per week. Weekday games generally begin at 6:00 pm. Saturday games are scheduled throughout the day. Teams may play double headers. Games are scheduled from early April through mid-June. Home games are played at Essex Park. In late March the official schedule will be published at 

Major Baseball follows the Little League Baseball Official Regulations and Playing Rules and District #2 Local Rules.  Games are played on a 60-feet diamond with a pitching distance of 46 feet.
