Little League to change format

In an effort to make a more competitive baseball environment for the 11- and 12-year-olds, the DeKalb County Little League will change from the traditional Little League format to an intermediate level. The local program will not be leaving the Little League organization but rather will be implementing a new division. Starting this season, the 11- and 12 -year-old division will move the pitcher's mound from 46 feet to 50 feet, while the baselines will also be longer, moving from 60 feet to 70 feet.
