Intermediate (50/70) Division

 

The Intermediate (50/70) Baseball Division was introduced in January, 2010, as a pilot program for 12- and 13-year-olds which utilizes a 50-foot pitching distance and 70-foot base paths.

The division, which was new division of Little League Baseball in 2013 for players league-age 11-13 with postseason tournament opportunities, including a World Series, offers a transition for players between the standard Little League field size (46-foot pitching distance and 60-foot base paths) and the Junior/Senior/Big League field size (60-foot, 6-inch pitching distance and 90-foot base paths).

Many of the Junior League rules are used such as runners being permitted to lead off bases, runners may attempt to steal at any time, and allowing an on-deck batter.

The culmination of the International Tournament is the Intermediate (50/70) Baseball World Series, featuring teams from around the world. All expenses for the teams advancing to the World Series (travel, meals and housing) are paid by Little League International.

Parents are strongly encouraged to become involved in this division of Little League. After completing a Little League volunteer application and passing a required national background check, parents may become involved in practices, and be eligible as coaches, managers, umpires, local league board members and other volunteer positions within the league.

Intermediate (50/70) FAQ

What is “50/70” (aka “Intermediate”)

The term refers to the dimensions of the field. A little league field measures 46-feet to the mound, and 60-feet between bases. This new division is Little League’s attempt to create a transitional experience between the small field and the “big” diamond used in the upper divisions.

Who Is eligible to play in Ladera’s 50/70 division?

Any league-age 12 or 13-year-old who is also signed up and playing majors or juniors. Thus the term ‘Bonus Division.’ Information from pilot programs in other leagues indicates that many kids in this age range prefer to play both with their friends and also in a competitive environment.

Why is the League taking this step?

Little League International and District 68, to which Aviation Little League belongs, are strongly encouraging leagues to introduce the Intermediate 50/70 division as a response to the changing nature of youth baseball and the higher skill level of younger players. The current divisions and dimensions date back to 1958.

What are the rule differences from majors?

50/70 is more akin to Junior-level or PONY baseball primarily because lead-offs and pick-offs are permitted. Big-barrel BBCOR bats are permitted and games are 7-innings. Junior-level minimum play rules apply.

How is pitching regulated?

Players will follow age-based pitching restrictions as outlined in Regulation VI. The pitcher's record "follows" the pitcher from one division to the next. Players must also adhere to the catching restrictions outlined in Regulation VI. Additionally, local restrictions on 50/70 pitch counts may be installed prior to the start of the season to ensure minimal impact on other divisions.

How does tournament play (All-Stars) work in 50/70?

Players who participate in at least 60% of his team’s games will have access to a national tournament (similar to Williamsport) culminating in a nationally-televised World Series in Livermore, CA. A player can be eligible for tournament play in two divisions but ultimately must choose one to practice and play on (i.e. majors or 50/70). To clarify, playing regular-season 50/70 DOES NOT restrict players from playing in the Little League Division that culminates at the Little League World Series in Williamsport, PA.
