General Information: The 13 & Under Intermediate League is a step up from Minor League and is played to the Little League 50/70 rules. It is a competitive grade against all other clubs within the Auckland Baseball Association. Whilst still playing on a junior diamond, the focus moves to positional development  with players emerging as pitchers, catchers, infielders and outfielders, while striving for club, national and even international honours!

Our Players are able to trial for selection of the Auckland Little League team that competes for a spot in the  Asia/Pacific Little League World Series qualifiers.

This WestCity 13U placed 4th at the 20/21 New Zealand Baseball United Airlines National Tournament

Games are generally played Saturday afternoons. Home games are played on the junior diamond at McLeod Park, and Away games are at various locations – the furthest being Orewa in the north and Hamilton in the south.

The “main event” for this grade is the National Championship tournament. The 20/21 season saw the competition being held in Nelson. Our team did extremely well and made play offs.

21/22 National Tournament venue is still to be announced. It is likely that we will send a team to this event, so fundraising will commence towards the end of the year to help cover costs.

To be eligible to play in the 13U grade, a Player cannot turn 14 before the 1st Of September 2022. The age criteria for Baseball is set on the Little League rules. If they do they must play in the higher grade.
