New Intermediate Division of Little League
12 & 13 year old players
Twin Town Little League has added a new intermediate division of play for the 2013 season.
The intermediate division will provide our 13 year old players with a transition season to move from a little league sized field to a full size field as well as provide our 12 year old players an opportunity to play baseball at a higher level without losing their little league eligibility.
The Poestenkill fields P-1 & P-2 will be modified to accomodate the larger infield and greater fence distances. The size of the infield will increase from the current 46/60 to 50/70 (50ft pitching distance and 70ft base paths). The fences will be moved back to a minimum distance of 200ft.
