Culver City Little League Adopts Intermediate 50/70 Baseball Program

Culver City Little League (CCLL) is pioneering a new program officially adopted through Little League International. Beginning with the 2013 Spring season, CCLL is eliminating their traditional Major Baseball (10-12 Year Olds) program and replacing it with the newly formed Little League Intermediate (11-13 Year Olds) program.  

The division, the first new program in Little League since 1999, bridges the transition from Little League (46/60) to Junior League Baseball on a full-size field (60/90). Intermediate Baseball, known as 50/70 Baseball in some circles, incorporates Big League baseball rules such as lead offs, pick offs and other nuances of real baseball. The 50/70 stands for the 50 foot pitching distance from the mound to the plate and 70 foot distances between bases. The new baseball program is open to league age 11-13 year olds pending a player evaluation. Visit www.culvercitylittleleague.org for more information and/or to register for the Spring 2013 Season. 

Founded in 1957, Culver City Little League provides baseball & softball programs to over 500 boys and girls, ages 4-13, every season.
