When players reach the age of 13 (as of April 30) they are no longer eligible for play on the little league diamond (60 ft base paths). Player safety as well as development dictates the timing of this transition. It is a significant transition and quite entertaining to watch players reactions when they step on to the big diamond (90 ft base paths) to play for the first time. Suddenly a throw across the diamond is 127 ft (not 84), a solid line drive to right field that drops is probably an out as it is now a 90 ft run and a 30 ft shorter throw for the fielder.
