Major 70

Mathewson McCarthy’s Major level is divided into two independent divisions, Major 60 and Major 70. There is no inter-division play between these two levels. Playing ages in the Majors divisions are 10 to 12 years-old. All 10 year-old players play at Major 60 along with some 11 and 12 year-old players. Most 12 year-old players play at Major 70. Each division has different playing rules with Major 70’s rules being more advanced. Major 70 games are played on a 70’ diamond with a 50’ pitching distance under a program approved by Babe Ruth League. Major 70 also uses official baseball rules which, together with the larger diamond, are intended to help players with the transition to the Babe Ruth Senior Division.
