13 or Under
ABOUT THIS DIVISION
The 13U division is open to all players 13 (14 for female athletes) or under as of December 31 of the current baseball year. However, if your child is eligible for Little League, we encourage you to sign up with your local Little League Association rather than VCB.
At the 13U level, the base paths are set at 70 feet and the pitching distance is 48 feet. A regulation game is 7 innings. However, a new inning cannot be started more than 2 hours 15 minutes after first pitch and games may be shortened due to weather or light conditions. Base runners are permitted to lead off, balks are called, and the dropped 3rd strike rule is in effect.
The 13U division is tiered. Players may try out for the "AA" or "AAA" teams which offer a more competitive level of play. These teams will play similar level teams from other associations. Players not selected to the "AA" or "AAA" teams will be selected to one of the "A" teams which offer a more recreational level of play.
