50-70 Intermediate Division

HTRBA Little League would like to participate in the NJ District 12 Intermediate Division (50/70) in 2017. This division will play on a 50/70 field and will be comprised of 11, 12, and 13 year olds (as of 8/31/17).

Right now, I’m just trying to gauge the level of interest we have in this division before I make a commitment to the District. We would need to have 15-18 players show interest in playing (including several 13 year olds), for us to move forward. Once we have the players, I can work on securing a manager.

Games will be played against other leagues in our district (Sunnybrae, Bordentown, Nottingham, etc.). We will play home games on B Field. For the regular season, 11s and 12s can play on both a 46/60 (Majors or International) team and a 50/70 team. Also, 13 year olds can play on our 50/70 team and a 60/90 team in another organization (Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig, etc.). We are specifically looking for 13 year olds to pitch.

We’re planning on playing about 10 regular season games in the Intermediate Division. The registration fee will be somewhere around $60.

For those not familiar with 50/70, the idea is to make the transition from the small Little League field to the large regulation field easier. The “50” represents the distance from the pitchers mound to home plate, and the “70” represents the distance between the bases. Little League is 46/60, and Babe Ruth plays on a regulation 60/90 field. Rules are more in line with "regular" baseball... leading, stealing, etc.

If your son is interested, please send an email to president@HTRBA.com by the end of January.
