The Little League Baseball Division (also known as the Major Division) is for boys league ages 10-12. The diamond used is a 60-foot diamond and the pitching distance is 46 feet.
The local league has an option to choose a Tournament Team (or "All Stars") of league age11-12-year-olds from within this division, and the team may enter the International Tournament.
The culmination of the International Tournament is the Little League 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.
The Intermediate (50/70) Baseball Division was introduced in January, 2010, as a pilot program for league age 12- and 13-year-olds which utilizes a 50-foot pitching distance and 70-foot base paths.
The division, which is 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).
Many of the Junior League rules will be used such as runners being permitted to lead off bases, runners may attempt to steal at any time, and allowing an on-deck batter.
