Intermediate Baseball (50/70)
The newest division created by Little League available for players league age eleven (11) through thirteen (13). The division expands playing opportunities and bridges a transition from the Majors (46 foot pitching distance / 60 foot base path) field dimensions to the new 50/70 field dimension. In turn, the division prepares players to play at the Juniors Division on 60/90 fields by allowing leading off, pick offs, balks, and use of larger barrel bats. The division will be managed by District 2 and structured through interleague play for a 12-game minimum regular season and end-of-season tournament. This division of play allows local leagues in the Treasure Valley to participate in a division for more advanced players during the regular season. Players may be able to participate in this division as well as either a 'Majors' or 'Juniors' division as decided by league at assessments and hence earn dual eligibility for post season All Star Tournament play under either division of play (e.g., Majors and Intermediate or Juniors and Intermediate). Players must ultimately make a decision and qualify for post season play under only one division.

Juniors Baseball
The Junior Division shall consist of players who are league age thirteen (13) and fourteen (14). NOTE: League age twelve (12) year olds are eligible for Juniors per Regulation IV.a), per Little League Operating Manual. All players must participate in a skills assessment and will be subsequently selected to teams in the player draft. The number of teams will be determined by the Junior Division director and will be based on the number of players who register for this division. The maximum number of players on a team will not exceed fifteen (15). Players that register after the regular registration dates will be placed on the waiting list and are required to go through the assessment. Every effort will be made to ensure every player who registers will have a team to play on.
