Over 36,000 people visiting the remodeled Max Baer Park in Livermore, California, the inaugural Little League Intermediate World Series was seen as an overwhelming success. Ten (10) teams from around the world — including the local Pleasanton National team, five more U.S teams and four international teams — as well as families, fans and friends traveled to the San Francisco Bay Area for 19 games, which ended with the team from Japan defeating the Collier Township, PA team, 10 -1 to win the Championship game, before 6,650 fans.
The Intermediate Division began as a two-year pilot program, before becoming an official division in 2012. Players ages 11-13 are eligible to play in this Intermediate baseball league, which features a 50-foot pitching distance and 70-foot bases, also known as “50/70”.
Little League Baseball, founded in 1939 in Williamsport PA, will be celebrating its 75th Anniversary this year.
