I totally agree. My son was 11 on a 12U team last summer

that was still 46/60. It was run at your own risk and even though we had some decent catchers (including my son) it was nearly impossible to pick off a competent runner, even with a quick stretch by the pitcher, just because the distance was too short.

Actually our local Catholic schools league is disappointing not only in that the 5th and 6th graders still play 46/60, but that the 7th and 8th graders don't even play on the full size field - they're 80 foot base paths!
