Division Bylaws - 2022: Intermediate (50/70) Bylaws

Intermediate (50/70) baseball division was introduced in January 2010 as a pilot program for 12 - 13 year old players. These games are played on baseball fields which utilize 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 field size (60-foot, 6-inch pitching distance and 90-foot base paths).

Regular season players in the Little League Intermediate (50/70) Baseball Division have the opportunity to dual roster, meaning he/she can play in the Little League Major Baseball Division during the same season. Achieving tournament eligibility is possible in either division, but a player must choose one division of play to participate in during the tournament season.

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.

Enfield has been a pioneer in the Intermediate (50/70) program being one of only two with teams in our District for the past 3 seasons.  We have two fields that can be used for Intermediate (50/70) games; one being a brand-new field build at ACC.  This division is starting to gain serious interest within our District and surrounding district as Leagues and families see the massive benefits this program brings   It gives us the opportunity to teach our younger players how to play “real” baseball.  It also allows for kids to properly transition from the 60 to 90 foot fields. Enfield policy is that it is required to play at least one season at Intermediate (50/70) level before moving up to the 90 foot (High School) Diamond.
