I'd be interested to hear if they're going to allow players to play 50/70 (Hey, how 'bout a name for this division), and Majors or Juniors at the same time.
I'm guessing it will be played with Juniors rules, with some sort of bat rule that will baffle us all. Yeah, I know 1.15 is coming to 2 5/8", but that's not enough dumb things down on this little field, with big kids.
As a base umpire, it would be nice to know what bats will be allowed, so I can chose to be inside, or outside. I've done games on this size field with 13, near 14 year olds, and being inside is crazy. 6 foot kids + -10 2 5/8" bats = trouble for F1, F5 and any base umpire in B and C.
If WP had any sense, they'd make this a wood bat division, thus allowing parks with a 200' fence to offer it. Bases and mounds are much easier to adjust than a fence and scoreboard. I apologize in advance for using logic in this situation.
I understand what WP is trying to do. Keep the 13 year olds playing Little League baseball. The drop off in numbers after 12 is gigantic. Kids either quit, not wanting to go to 90', go play with some other organization (PONY, or other 54/80 fields), or play travel ball. It's a numbers ($) thing, and there's nothing wrong with wanting to keep you numbers up. I'd like to keep the 13 year olds involved in LL, too. That's why we have a Junior umpire program to do just that.
