ABOUT SECOND SEASON  

Second Season is designed with the player and coach in mind. Whatever your goals are going into next year's season may be, Second Season can help you accomplish those goals. Whether you want to get a jump start on the new rules for the following year, accumulate more points towards next year, play more baseball to improve your skills, or just play with you buddies,  Second Season will help you do all of those. With flexible rosters, accommodating  scheduling and coaches input, Second Season can help you develop as a coach, team or player. It is designed to be a relaxed, competitive fun league with some flexibility.

2022 AAA/MAJ teams will play in their 2023 age division. (example: 2022 11U MAJ team will play 12U in Second Season)
