Dear Parents,

As most are aware there is a Little League rule that if a 12 yr old would like to play in the Majors then they must be drafted by a team. As a board we just want to ensure kids/parents are making the best decision and are aware of what life in the Majors is like.

In Majors the minimum playing time rule is 2 innings in the field and 1 AB. Playing time is decided based on ability not age. The level of competition can be intense and overwhelming for some. Not every player will pitch and/or play infield.

The question comes up every year if a player can go back to AAA if they realize early in the season the Majors is not for them. Unfortunately that cannot be done as it is not fair to AAA to place a kid on a team after their draft has taken place.

12 yr old year should be a child’s best year of youth baseball. Every year there are handful of players that decide to play in the Majors and that does not end up being the case. On the other hand there are number of players that come up to the Majors each year and have a great deal of success.

Any specific questions can be directed to Assistant Majors Director Steve Pratt: spratt8994@gmail.com

Regards,

Braintree American Little League Board of Directors

Update on School Rule

There has been a lot of questions of the School Rule over the last several weeks during registration.

The school rule is secondary to the street you live on , so if you reside on a street that is on Braintree American's boundary nothing changes. What this allows is that if you lived on a street on the East Braintree side of the boundary but went to a school on our side like Liberty or Flaherty you could play in Braintree American.

Below is the current status of how this rules applies to the town of Braintree.

  • Due to there being a centralized Kindergarten in Braintree, Little League has issued a waiver that only allows this rule to apply beginning in the 1st grade.
  • There is also a boundary change effective this year that puts Hollis School on the East Braintree side of the boundary. If you are on the left side of Washington street as you are heading to Quincy and go to Hollis school then you are on a Braintree American street and nothing changes. What this does is balance each league with 3 schools as it applies to the school rule.
