Division - 13U
Player Birth Years - 2010 or 2011
At 13U "live" pitching is used throughout the game. Players play on a larger field and a slightly longer pitching distance than 11U, and a regulation hard ball is used.
A run limit is imposed on all innings except the last where unlimited runs may be scored.
To protect from arm injury, pitchers are governed by BC Baseball pitch count rules which limit the number of pitches allowed and the number of days rest required for arm recovery.
The Spring season will start in mid-April and finishes towards the end of June.
