Little League Baseball's Big League Baseball program is for youth age 15 to 18. Players participate in a regular season, playing against teams from other local leagues and districts. For 2013, California District 14 had two teams, one from Mission San Jose Little League (Fremont) and a second team, comprised of players from Centerville National Little League (Fremont), Centerville American Little League (Fremont), Niles-Centerville Little League (Fremont) and Newark American Little League.
