This is the most competitive division of Little League baseball. The majority of players in this division are 12 years old and have played with SMLLA since they were little. This Division also includes 11 year-olds and a small handful of 10-year-olds with advanced skills. All 12-year-olds that desire to play in the Majors division will be drafted onto a team. Approximately 50% of 11's will be drafted to Majors with the rest playing in our PCL division.
Full Little League Rules are followed (stealing home is allowed, batters can advance on a dropped third strike, etc). Standings are kept and the season culminates with a postseason playoff tournament. Majors players are the first selected after the season to fill the 12, 11 and 10-year-old District All-Star Teams and the Majors SuperBowl Team (mostly 12-year-olds) to represent SMLLA during the post-season tournaments run by CA District 52.
Team's typically play a 16-18 game schedule, with practices beginning in February and games running from March to early June. There is typically one field practice, one batting practice, and two games per week. Majors games are usually played on Trinta North. There is one weekday afternoon game and one weekend game per week. Practices are typically at a local field in San Mateo. Batting Cages are at Trinta or a local batting cage facility.
