These are the AYL's most competive divisions. Regular season games are scheduled Tuesday - Thursday leaving the weekends for tournament play. Regular season games begin early April and will conclude early July. We offer teams for players ages 8-14.
Players typically tryout for teams during the fall and/or winter prior to the season. A few teams are still in need of players. See the Tryout Information tab on the baseball homepage for current teams in need of players.
