Overview

The Little League® Intermediate World Series was held at Max Baer Park in Livermore California from July 30 through August 5, 2013.
This is the first year of the Intermediate World Series.
Note: This page is provided by eLivermore.com.  This is NOT the official website for the World Series.  Click here for the official website.

The Intermediate Division consists of ages 11 to 13, but will mostly be 13 year olds.
The division is also knows as "50/70" as the distance from the pitching rubber to the plate is 50 feet, and the distance between the bases is 70 feet.
Rules are very similar to the Jr. 80s Division (80 feet between bases) in that playing off and stealing bases are allowed.

Note that the more well known Little League® World Series is the "Majors" world series held in Williamsport, PA in August.

  General Intermediate stats
Distance between bases 70 feet
Distance, Pitchers rubber to the plate 50 feet
Team sizes Typically 14
Innings played 7
Age Group 11-13 year olds
Max runs per inning no limit.
Mercy Rule If a team is behind by 10 or more runs after they have batted in the 5th inning the game is over.

  Max Baer 1 Specifics
Distance from the plate to the outfield fence About 260 feet (Max Baer 1 distance)
Outfield Fence Height About 10 feet (Max Baer 1 distance).
Fence The field is completely surrounded by a chain link fence about 10 feet high.  It is much higher behind the plate (see photo below).
Dogs Dogs are NOT permitted.  However, there is a dog park 60 feet beyond the Left Field fence with a view of the games.
Bull Pens Bull pens are down the 1st and 3rd base lines.
Name of the Park Max Baer Park is named for the boxer Max Baer.  Born in 1909, his family moved to Livermore when he was 15.  He became the Heavyweight Champion of the World in 1934.  His son, Max Baer Jr. is an actor, director, and producer known mainly for playing Jethro Bodine on The Beverly Hillbillies.  Max Baer Sr. also did some acting.  While in Livermore, he lived in a house that is within the current park, near where the pre-school building is now, by Max Baer 2 field, on Murdell Lane.

  Some basic rules
Playing off, stealing Playing off and stealing are permitted.
On Deck Batter On-deck batters are allowed.
Substitution There is unlimited substitution (a player may go back in after exiting the game).
  There are rules about where they can be inserted in the batting order.  I.E. you can't keep batting a player over and over.
Special Pinch Runner One Special Pinch Runner (SPR) may be used by each team each inning.  A Special Pinch Runner may run for another player who is on base.
Pitch count limits 13 year olds are limited to 95 pitches.  11-12 year olds are limited to 85 pitches.  If they reach the limit during a batter, they may finish the batter.
Pitchers must also observe days of rest until they may pitch again based on the following table:
   1-20 pitches thrown:  0 days rest (may pitch the next day)
   21-35 pitches thrown:  1 days rest
   36-50 pitches thrown:  2 days rest
   51-65 pitches thrown:  3 days rest
   66 or more pitches thrown:  4 days rest
If a pitcher reaches a specific limit while facing a batter, he may finish the batter and still be considered to be within the range.
A pitcher removed from the mound may return provided that he has played a different defensive position since pitching (was not removed from the game).  He can return only once.
A player who has played as catcher for 4 or more innings may not pitch that day.
Minimum # of games All teams will play a minimum of 3 games. Three team's 3rd game may be a "Goodwill Game", having already been eliminated.  Originally a US team might have played only two games, but an additional Goodwill game has been added which prevents this.

  What to expect
Stealing With the 70 foot bases, stealing is easier than in 80s or 90s.  However, at the higher levels of play, while common, it does not happen as often as you would think.  This is the shortest base distance where stealing is permitted.
Home Runs They definitely happen, but it is very much based on the skill of the pitcher vs. the batter.  Many games occur without any home runs, but I have taken photos of players hitting home runs on this field.  The 2013 Intermediate world series had about 3 home runs, and at least one ball that hit the very top of the fence.
Foul Balls in the stands Foul balls will definitely go into the stands.  Be alert, as you would be at an MLB game.
Never grab the fence with your fingers through.  Foul tips and foul balls travel at a very high rate at this level.
