This division, as created by Little League International, will be for players who are 13 years old. It features a 50 foot distance for the pitching mound (vs. 46 feet in the Major Division or 60 feet in the Junior Division) and 70 foot base paths (vs. 60 feet for the Major Division or 90 feet for the Junior Division). A key feature of this division is the introduction of full baseball rules, including leading, stealing, pickoffs and balks. This division was created by Little League International in 2012 in response to dwindling participation in both Major and Junior divisions. In the past, 13 year olds would have to jump to a full sized field (60 foot pitching distance, 90 foot base paths). This is often a difficult transition as many 13 year olds lack the strength to compete on a Junior field. In just 3 years the Intermediate Division has grown from 447 teams worldwide to over 6000.
