2018 Caln AA Baseball Divisional Updates

Caln AA is adopting a new structure for our baseball divisions for the 2018 season.  Due to Little League's age change that was implemented back in 2015, we will adjust our divisions as follows:


Tee Ball:              4 & 5 year old

Rookies:              6 & 7 year old

Minors:                8 & 9 year old

Majors:                10 & 11 year old

Intermediate:       12 & 13 year old


The above division adjustments, along with the Rookies division that was added in 2015, will allow boys to play within divisions with others of similar ability.  The intermediate division, known as 50/70, was developed by Little League and added in 2011. Intermediate baseball utilizes 50' pitching distance and 70' base paths as well as the same rules as in High School and above.  Intermediate division's purpose is to “bridge” the gap from 46'/60 baseball to 60'/90' baseball.  Through adjusting the ages of our Majors and Intermediate divisions, our goal is to allow another year of development for boys to enjoy baseball at age appropriate levels.  Not only will they have another season to develop their ability, but also allow for a more enjoyable experience in each respective division. 

Our ultimate goal is to place each player in an age appropriate division where they can develop and compete against players of similar abilities and age. 

Below is 2018 Little League Age determination statement:

As announced in 2015, the new age determination date of August 31 for players born on or before April 30, 2005, will be effective starting with the 2018 Little League Baseball season. The four-month group of individuals in the Major division, born between May 1 and August 31, 2005, who have been grandfathered into the rule will begin utilizing the new, August 31 age determination date beginning with the 2019 season. (Pages 38-40 in Baseball).

Summary

Intermediate (50-70) Division: Any participant with amateur status who will attain the age of 11 years before September 1, 2018, and who will not attain the age of 14 years on or before August 31, 2018, shall be eligible to compete in the Intermediate (50-70) Division. This means a participant who will be 14 years old on September 1 or later is eligible to play that year; a participant who will be 14 years old on August 31 or earlier will not be eligible for either local league or tournament play in the Intermediate (50-70) Division at any time during the calendar year in question.
