The Little League Major Division is eligible for boys and girls ages 9-12.
A local league may choose to limit its Major Division to 10, 11 and 12-year-olds, or 11-12-year-olds. The local league has authority to select its teams with a local draft process as long as it does not conflict with International Little League. The diamond used is a 60-foot diamond and the pitching distance is 46 feet. In addition to International Little League rules, the HWLL has local rules that govern play.
The Major League Director is responsible for ensuring the league players, managers, coach volunteers and parents all subscribe to the respective HWLL Code of Conduct.
The HWLL Safety Officer ensures that all fields of play are safe from hazards and are suitable for play. Any questions from a parent or adult regarding a team or player should be brought to the attention of the Major League Director or the team Manager.
HWLL Major League Games are typically played at Patton Park field in Hamilton and Cheeseman and Black Field in Pingree Park in Wenham. Games consist of 6 full innings of play with a registered state certified umpire as official of the game. No spectators are allowed onto the field during the game. No dogs are allowed on fields at any time. HWLL asks that during games, dog owners refrain from attending the game with their pet.
Parents are strongly encouraged to become involved in Little League. After completing a Little League volunteer application and passing a required national background check, parents may become involved in practices, and be eligible as coaches, managers, umpires, local league board members and other volunteer positions within the league.
