Little League Baseball Beyond Majors!
Little League fun, developmental, and recreational baseball does not need to end at age 12! In fact, just the opposite!
D52 operates divisions for kids baseball age 13 and 14 who have completed Majors. In these division, teams from different leagues across the district play against each other. These divisions offer traditional rules baseball, including lead-offs, unlimited steals, pick-offs and balks. Players get to play what they watch on TV every night!
If you love to play baseball, and want to have fun playing with your friends and represent your city, these are great divisions for you.
We offer two unique divisions:
54-80: For players baseball who played in Majors last year and are 13 or 14 this year. This division features a mid-sized field (80’ bases, 54’ pitching, same as USSSA) which fits this age group. This size makes for a dynamic game, and is a great stepping stone to the full-sized field. We utilize excellent fields such as Sea Cloud, Burton and El Camino Parks.
60-90: For players baseball age 14, and for some all-star level 13’s, this features play on a full-sized field (90’ bases, 60’ pitching). Games are primarily played on high school fields.
What is great about these divisions is how much growth occurs. Since some of the all-star players will likely not return, players who didn't get to play certain positions in Majors are all pressed into service and have the opportunity to rise to the occasion. There is room for kids of all skill levels!
If you are focused on other sports or activities, but aren't ready to stop playing baseball, you will find opportunities here. If you are playing in a select "academy/travel" program, and getting good training, but not getting much game time or not getting to play your favorite positions, we may have options for you too.
The schedule is similar to Majors - two games per week, one during the week and one on the weekend. Each division will have a regular season tournament at the end, and then an all-star tournament for those selected.
