Berwyn Paoli Area Little League

Intermediate 50/70 - Baseball

Important Note

BPALL has not had an Intermediate team/division in recent years. Players age 13 play in the Juniors division.

Eligibility

League age 13 (as of August 31).

Overview

The Intermediate 50/70 Division—first introduced to Little League in 2010—serves to transition players from the 40/60 field dimensions of the Majors to the pro-level 60/90 diamonds of the Junior and Senior Divisions. Pitchers and base-runners undoubtedly appreciate the bridge.

Beyond field dimensions, players enjoy an expansion of game rules, nudging them closer to the guidelines and excitement of MLB play. Base-runners can now take leads off the bag and their counterparts on the mound and at the plate can pick them off. Pitch count allowances increase to 95 pitches per day.

Season

Player evaluations, if held, are typically conducted in late February or early March. Practices typically begin around the end of March. Games typically start in early to mid April and go until early to mid June.

Field Dimensions

Pitching distance is expanded to 50 feet and base-paths to 70 feet.

Game Duration

Games are seven innings

Rules Expansion

Base-runners can now take a lead and, consequently, be picked off.
