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 and they can be held any day of the week starting late April and ending in mid-June. Games are typically on Monday/Wednesday or Tuesday/Thursday and most Saturdays, but this can vary year to year.
Two practices will be held per week starting in 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.
