Majors (11 - 13 years old): The fundamentals (hitting, base running, fielding, and the rules) of the game are emphasised to players. Players (pitchers) pitch to one another in a competitive game (e.g., 6 innings). Balls and strikes are called by a League umpire. Players compete with an emphasis on sportsmanship. Games do count in the standings. Usually games are all played on the weekends. Before each game there is a minimum of one hour practise and then a game played. Doubleheaders (two games played on one day) may occur throughout the season.
