Please Note: Yesterday was the last day to get All-Star Team Affidavits approved. It is my understanding that several "other" leagues had a team(s) not approved which means the tournament brackets schedules will change. We will try to give all the All-Star Managers updated information, should it affect your team(s). FYI - All of our, AALL, league and players were 100% approved.

 

Tournament brackets can be found here:  http://leaguelineup.com/tournaments.asp?url=ca17&sid=356655856 

 

 

Thank you all for your support. We will be sending information on Fall Ball Registration soon. We will be forming teams from T-Ball, Machine Pitch Prep, Kid Pitch Prep, Minors and Majors. This is a great opportunity for you to invite a friend and have them introduced to this wonderful team sport, baseball. I look forward posting more information soon.

 

Hope to see you all at these games and root on our teams.

AALL Repeats as Majors Fall Ball Champions

Arcadia American Navy wasted an early 6-1 lead but held the host Sierra Madre Brewers scoreless over the final three innings and went on to win the annual District 17 Fall Ball Tournament championship, 11-6, at Heasley Field. Kyle Lin got the win in relief and Julian Eskridge earned a save. Devon Eskridge had three RBI and two hits and Guy Gruppie, Jr. two RBI and two hits to pace the AALL offense. For AALL, that's two straight Fall Ball crowns. Congratulations on the latest championship, which caps one of the most successful seasons in AALL's 58-year history.
