Recreational Baseball for Teens!

There is a popular misconception in this town regarding how old is TOO old to play recreational baseball in Sparta. Many believe that once the player is past the age of 12 that he "ages out" of recreational baseball. The Sparta Little League Baseball program would like everyone to know that simply is not true!  
 
There are fun and exciting opportunities for teens to participate in baseball. Players who are ages 11 through 13 have the option of the Intermediate 50/70 division. For those not familiar, 50/70 refers to the size of the playing field. It is larger than the standard field used by Little League through age 12. Yes, there is some overlap. If a player is 11 or 12 years old, he has the option of playing in either the 11/12-year-old division (also known as the Majors division), the Intermediate 50/70 division or both! The larger field of the Intermediate division offers more of a challenge for those who are ready. 
 
Thirteen-year-olds also have a couple of options. Players 13 years of age are eligible for the Intermediate 50/70 division, as stated above, as well as the Juniors division. The Juniors division is for 13- and 14-year-olds and the size of the field is larger still. The Juniors play on a 60/90 field which offers a much greater challenge. For more information regarding field size and what these numbers mean, visit www.spartabaseball.com and choose the links, "Intermediate 50/70 Division," and, "Juniors Division," from the main menu.
 
Sparta Little League Baseball president, Jane Bova, wants people to know that these options exist for the older players. "It has become clear to us that one of the reasons we don't have very strong Intermediate and Juniors programs here in Sparta is that people just don't know about it. These divisions offer a fun way for the older players to both get some exercise outdoors as well as spend time with their friends doing something they enjoy!"   
 
Registration is going on now for all ages, tee ball through Juniors. Discount offered to those who are eligible for and participate in two divisions. Visit www.spartabaseball.com to register.
