My photos are posted there.


The Little League® Intermediate World Series was held at Max Baer Park in Livermore California from July 29 through August 4, 2014.
This is the second year of the Intermediate World Series.
In 2014 the Intermediate World Series will feature 6 US teams (one District 57 and 5 regional champions) and 5 International regional champion teams.
This is one additional International team from last year.
There will be 22 total games played 2014 vs. 20 (including the Challenger game) played in 2013.

Bill Nale of eLivermore.com is the official photographer for the 2014 World Series.

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.

* Actual Innings column:
N (no decimal): Inning ended with final out in the bottom of the inning (Visiting team wins)
N.5: Inning ended with final out in the top of the inning (Home team wins)
N.6: No outs in the bottom of the inning when the winning run scored (Home team wins)
N.7: 1 out in the bottom of the inning when the winning run scored (Home team wins)
N.9:  2 out in the bottom of the inning when the winning run scored (Home team wins)
"winning run" could be home team going up by 1 or more runs in the bottom of the 7th or later inning, or run which causes the 10 run rule (5th or 6th inning) to take effect.
Following the "winning run", any run that scores in the play does not count unless the ball was hit over the fence as a home run (in which case all runs count assuming they come around and score).


B7 = Bottom of the 7th win.
All times are PDT (Pacific Daylight time) which is UTC-7.

Note:  The US and International Championship games are single elimination, even though one of the teams enters with 1 loss and other with 0 losses.
There is NOT an "if necessary" game if the team from the elimination bracket wins.  The winner of the Championship games goes on to the finals.

  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. Some team's 3rd game may be a "Goodwill Game", having already been eliminated.
Goodwill Games Two Goodwill games are played.  These games assure that every team will play at least 3 games.  Both games pair a US team against an International teams.  These are the ONLY games other than the Championship game to have a US team play an International team.

  What to expect / Fan Guide
Seating There are bleachers for about 600 people.  Attendance varies based on the game, but the Championship game had about 6650 people attending.  Bring lawn chairs or blankets for viewing from the outfield.  Outfield viewing had a casual festive atmosphere.  It is where It took most of my photos from last year, and provides excellent viewing.  The outfield area in dead center field is blocked off so that the batter and catcher have a neutral background and are not distracted.
Weather Rain is HIGHLY UNLIKELY.  Rain is very rare in Livermore in the summer.  The rainy season is in the winter.  It just forgot to show up this past winter.
Temperature: Highs are generally in the mid 80s to high 90s, and sometimes over 100F.  Lows are generally in the high 50s to low 60s.
   For the 7:30 games, it will cool off considerably by the end of the game.
Humidity: low.  It's great.
Livermore, like most of California is currently in a drought.  The baseball field itself will be green, but the rest of the grass in the park will be somewhat "golden" brown.  The hills that surround Livermore get that way every year.  Hence the "Golden State".
Photography Photography can be done through the outfield fence with good results.  I took most of my photos from there last year (see photos of the 2013 finals here).  There is a standard chain link fence all the way around the field, which can be a little challenging for photographing, but I had pretty good results last year.
Official Photography In 2014 I was the official photographer.
My photos of every game are available for viewing here.  They may be downloaded at no charge.  Prints may be purchased at my cost (what is charged by the photo sharing service I use).  You may also have prints made from downloaded images at your favorite photo printing service.
What you may bring
  • Lawn Chairs and Blankets to sit on.
  • Cameras (Still and video).  You may NOT broadcast or webcast audio or video without proper consent of Little League Baseball, however.
  • Sunscreen.  There are some shady areas for fans, but not all of the fan areas are in the shade.
NOT permitted:
  • Dogs are NOT permitted.  However, there is a dog park 60 feet beyond the Left Field fence with a view of the games.
  • Coolers are NOT permitted in the park.
  • Tobacco of any sort is NOT permitted at the World Series (or any Little League games)
  • Alcohol is NOT permitted at the World Series (or any Little League games)
  • Scooters and Bicycles may be used to get to the World Series, but may not be ridden inside the park for safety reasons.
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.


First game on the upgraded field in 2013.
