+Our Seniors and Majors division teams will compete in a house league with teams from Hamburg. Players aged 11-15 are eligible and travel players can participate. As part of this league, Majors teams can expect approximately nine games for the season (plus playoffs), while Seniors teams can expect approximately eight games (plus playoffs).
Players will need their own glove, facemask and pants (color usually determined by the coach). A bat and helmet is also required, but teams will have some to share if a player does not have their own. We highly recommend all players wear a heart guard. Rubber baseball spikes are strongly recommended. Metal spikes are only allowed at the Senior level.
