Intermediate League - 13U

The Intermediate League (13U) grade is about the continuing development of youth baseball players in a competitive environment. The clubs focus is on developing strong youth baseball players by developing catching, throwing and hitting skills within a disciplined yet fun setting.

The game is played on a junior diamond with 70ft (21.3m) base paths and a pitching distance of 50ft (15.25m).

Many of our players have played through from Kiwiball and the 10U grades however new players join every year at this grade and as this is still a development learning grade, they soon learn the skills needed to play the game. 

Games are played on Saturday afternoons (usually at 1:00 pm) and take around 2 hours.  Our home games are played at Albany Domain with away games played throughout the season at other clubs within Auckland.

The Intermediate League grade will train twice a week on a Monday and Wednesday evening.  Training will be at Albany Domain with training times to be confirmed soon.

The Auckland Baseball competition season starts Saturday 30 October 2021 and will continue through to Christmas, recommencing mid January through to March 2022.  Club pre-season training will start early October (dates to be confirmed).
