The major league division is designed for 11 to 12-year-old girls. Games consist of six innings, have a 5-run per inning limit, allows unlimited stealing and the drop third strike rule is in effect. Players use a 12” ball, and pitching distance is extended to 40’. Our league participates in the North Central Mass Softball Regional League, which will contain further rule modifications and allows for a post season playoff tournament and an interleague all-star game. All players must attend our annual player evaluations to ensure proper placement.
There are two to three games per week on either Monday at 6, Wednesday at 6 or Saturday at 2. Makeup games can be held any day of the week. Games start mid April and end in mid-June.
Two practices will be held per week starting in early April and continuing thru the end of the season. The days of the practices are the decision of the head coach and can fluctuate during the season.
Home games will be played at the Spaulding Softball Field.
Away games will primarily be played in either Ashburnham, Ayer, Fitchburg, Lunenburg, Shirley or Westminster, but can occasionally be played in Gardner, Narraganset or Winchendon.
We anticipate having one team of 10-12 girls.
