Major League Baseball Division

The HTLL Major League program is a competitive baseball league dedicated to enhancing individual baseball knowledge and skills combined with team tactics and strategy, providing higher level baseball competition, and promoting the Little League principles and sportsmanship for the youth of Haverford Township. 

The Major League consists of 6-8 teams of 12-13 players ages 11-12.  10 year olds will be invited to try out for majors on Player Evaluation Day in March.  Only 1 10 year old may be drafted by each major league team, however, this is not a requirement.

All new players to the league must attend Player Evaluation Day in March so equitable team drafts can take place. 

Any 11 and 12 year olds that played in HTLL's Minor League last year must attend Player Evaluation Day in March. 

Any 10 year old who wants to be considered for the Major League must acknowledge this to the Player Agent before evaluations.

There are 17-20 regular season games and two practices a week. Playoffs are single elimination. The season runs from early mid April to late June.

Current Major League teams and managers are:

Athletics - Sean Egan
Cardinals - Joe DiLauro
Indians - Vince Senatore
Orioles - Peter Oraschewski
Pirates - Vince Girondi
Marlins - Tom Dixon
