The Intermediate Division began as a two-year pilot program, before becoming an official division in 2012. Players ages 11-13 are eligible to play in this Intermediate baseball league, which features a 50-foot pitching distance and 70-foot bases, also known as “50/70”.

Little League Baseball was founded in 1939 in Williamsport, Pa.

Through proper guidance and exemplary leadership, the Little League program has assisted millions of children.

By espousing the virtues of character, courage and loyalty, the Little League programs, which also include softball, is designed to develop superior citizens rather than superior athletes.

Incorporated as a non-profit organization, Little League Baseball’s mission is to “promote, develop, supervise, and voluntarily assist in all lawful ways, the interest of those who participate in the organization.”
