C-Prep– This program is designed to prepare older kids for High School baseball and is played on the same size field as High Schools. This is a competitive program intended to ready players for the next level. (7th and 8th graders ONLY.)
Majors– The Majors program represents the most experienced players that show the highest level of competition in the AYL.
AAA– Our AAA Level represents a large number of players in our league. It is for more experienced players that are close, but striving to reach Majors level of play.
AA- This is our entry level yet still very competitive division and is intended for only those at an early level of experience.
For over 45 years, the AYL has produced an outstanding atmosphere for competitive baseball in the South Denver Metro Area. We are a league that is focused on the kids, a league that strives to improve each and every year, a league designed for the players in mind. We are focused on teaching lifelong lessons of the game with respect to physical education. We are a community based league that is played within the boundaries of our member clubs.
It is the AYL baseball Board's goal to manage a baseball program that is fun, promotes sportsmanship and a lifelong love of the game of baseball!
