Intermediate Division?

Bennett’s Creek Little League Families


We need your help.


Bennett’s Creek Little League Board of Directors is currently considering adding a new program offering to our players and families for spring 2020 season. Intermediate 50/70 Baseball Division.

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). The Intermediate division field size is 50-foot pitching distance and 70-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 as long as they meet age requirements. 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.

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.

The Bennett’s Creek Little League Board of Directors is trying to determine what level of interest our families would have in this potential new program. We would request that if you are interested or have questions concerning this new and exciting program please contact Player Agent Mike Wilcox (757) 418-4228 [email protected] no later than 1/1/2020.

Thank you for your support of Bennett’s Creek Little League.
