As happens from time to time in the fast paced ever changing world of big time sports, venues that we know
and love change names from one corporate sponsor to another. Today we are announcing that Yorktown JAA Field #1,
Tyler Wealth Diamond, and Yorktown JAA Field #5, Nanko Yard, are getting new names. Thank you for your patience as we
update signage and web pages.
Please welcome the new corporate sponsor of Field #1, Yorktown JAA's premiere baseball diamond, Toyota of Muncie.
For now, Field #5 will simply be know as "Field 5". If you are interested in becoming the field sponsor
of Field #5 please contact

Yorktown JAA Little League Announces 11-13 Year Old Intermediate 50/70 Baseball Division for 2017
A New Division that will Replace JAA's Little League Majors Baseball Division
The Yorktown JAA Board of Directors is excited to announce that starting with the Spring 2017 season our league
age 11 and 12 year old Little League Baseball Majors players will move to Little League's Intermediate 50/70 Division.
The Intermediate Division offers a rules package that is very similar to high school baseball on a scaled down field
with 70 foot base paths and a 50 foot pitching distance. Games will be played at the Yorktown Sports Park on Tyler
Wealth Diamond and Stoops Stadium.
The Intermediate Division offers a more appropriate transition between playing on the traditional Little League diamond
that has 60 foot base paths and the full size diamond that has 90 foot paths. This was a move that was greatly desired
by many of our coaches, players, and board members.
For more information on the Little League Intermediate 50/70 Division please click on the following link.
The Intermediate Division also opens an opportunity for JAA to allow players turning league age 13 to stay in JAA for an additional season. While the JAA board is confident
that all of our 2017 league age 11 and 12 year old players will easily transition to the Intermediate Division, any parent of a player who is league age 11 may request that
their player be permitted to play in the JAA Triple A Baseball Division.
The Little League Intermediate Division allows players to use either the traditional 2
1/4 inch diameter approved
Little League bat or BBCOR 2 5/8 inch diameter big barrel bats that are not longer than 34 inches in length.
2 3/4 inch bats are not permitted. Please visit Little League's bat information page for more info.
Baseball cleats with metal spikes are also permitted in the Intermediate Division. Players may continue to wear rubber
spiked cleats if they wish.
If you have questions about the Little League Intermediate Division please contact Yorktown JAA Little League President Ted Johnson.

Be Ready To Pay if You Park Illegally
The Town of Yorktown and the five organizations who share the Yorktown Sports Park frankly have no more
tolerance for illegal parking at the Sports Park. We ask that you please park in one of the two areas designated
for Yorktown JAA parking on the map shown below. Click anywhere on the map to open a larger version. Thank you to everyone
who already makes it a point to park in these areas. Parking along yellow curbs, in handicapped spots
without a proper permit, or any grass or dirt area at the park is illegal and will result in either a ticket, a tow, or both.
Some of you have already discovered $150 parking tickets on your windshield. Everyone else should consider themselves warned.
