It will include postseason tournament opportunities, including a World Series. The new baseball division will serve as a bridge between the current “Little League” size field (46-foot pitching distance, 60-foot base paths) and a standard baseball diamond with 60.5-foot pitching and 90-foot base paths.

Little League Baseball and Softball games are played by more than 2.5 million boys and girls ages 4 to 18 in 80 countries.
