Welcome to the Home of the
Aston Valley Baseball League
Please join the Executive Board in sending our condolences to two Aston Valley families. Our AV family lost two members this past week. Jack Babin, 21, passed away last week. Jack was a player through Aston Valley and always known for his smile, friendly nature and great sportsmanship. Jack played on a number of our tournament teams and will be dearly missed.
In addition, we learned of the passing of a former player and Executive Board member, Roy Dempsey. Roy literally grew up in the league and went on to play for the Baltimore Orioles organization. He lived in Aston and his son, Michael, also played all through Aston Valley. His wife Mary was a staple at the league helping in the stand and in many other aspects of the league. Roy coached in the league and served on our Executive Board in a number of positions including President. Roy passed away suddenly this week and will also be dearly missed by Aston Valley.
May both the Babin and Dempsey families remember the great things that Jack and Roy have accomplished and know that our league, it's members and our families are here for them.
Roy Dempsey: Aston Valley player, coach, President and friend.
Roy is rounding third during an alumni game. Yes, he was safe!

Aston Valley 15s Take the District Title!!!!
Congratulations to the Aston Valley Babe Ruth 15 year old team! They won the District championship over the weekend and proceed to the state this week. Good luck to Coach Rich June and our team!!!
Our 12 year old District Champs won 2 out of 4 this weekend at the Cal Ripken PA state competition. The team lost the first two to Harleysville and Warrington but came back on Sunday and won two games against Upper Makefield and Ridley.
Our 10s are still playing in the Newtown Edgemont LL tournament and have semifinals tonight (7/14) at 6:00
Aston Valley 12s Take District 9 Title
Congratulations to our 12 year old tournament team! They clinched the District 9 Championship this morning at 9:00 after taking the long way to the title. AV started with a loss to BYC in a game that was clearly intended to get the cob webs off the bats. AV went on to beat Unionville, Chichester, Nether Providence to get into the championship game. AV had to beat BYC twice to claim the championship. The first game was a close win by one run in an 8-7 game but forced BYC into the "if" game. AV came out hitting and went up 7-0 on Wednesday when mother nature threw a curveball and stopped the game in the bottom of the 5th. AV came back at 9:00AM on Thursday and added one more run to go into the top of 6. AV pitching held BYC off and the game ended with an Aston Valley win 8-0.
The team held an impromptu parade to Weir Park to deposit the 2014 District 9 trophy at the snack stand.
Our 12s move onto the state tournament in Upper Makefield on July 11! Good luck team!!!
Alumni Game - Success!!!
Our 3rd annual Aston Valley Alumni game was help on May 17th. It was a great game and overall success. By success, we mean that no one was injured!!!

About Aston Valley Baseball League - Why we are different.
About our League
Aston Valley Baseball League has a strong tradition in serving the youth of Aston Township and surrounding communities for over 50 years. We are an affiliate of the Babe Ruth League and their Cal Ripken Baseball League. Like many youth programs, we are run by volunteers who are dedicated to providing our players with a safe environment to learn the game of baseball while having fun being part of a team with friends and classmates. Our philosophy is that the players come first and we set-up our playing rules and regular season play with a focus on individual players and teamwork.
Aston Valley has two beautiful baseball facilities. Players 4 through 12 play at Weir Park on Weir Road in Aston. This facility has 4 baseball fields, 3 batting cages, snack stand, press box, restrooms, playground and our newly built Donovan pavilion is great for watching games and relaxing. There is plenty of room for the entire family to enjoy the game, a bite to eat and the park's facilities. No need to worry about any major highways or traffic. Our teener league plays on Buggy Field located at Sun Valley High School. This field was funded and built by our league and hosts not only our teener league but also Sun Valley and other baseball leagues who want a first class facility. Buggy Field also has a press box, restrooms and a snack stand.
Who plays at Aston Valley?
Aston Valley Baseball League has anywhere from 350-450 players during our regular spring season. We also host summer tournaments that bring in teams from across the region. Our recently added Fall Ball Program has been an incredible success with teams and players from Aston, Ridley, Springfield, Middletown, Newtown Square, Delaware, Brandywine, Chadds Ford and other towns. With our spring and fall ball registrations, we serve well over 1200 young players across the Delaware Valley!
A WINNING Tradition
After the regular season, our league participates in post-season tournament play that is sponsored by Babe Ruth League and Cal Ripken Baseball. Our tournament teams are selected in a very fair process that has been emulated by other leagues. Our teams have a strong tradition of winning and representing not only our league but our community in a very proud manner. AVBL has won many district tournaments, state championships and regional titles. Stop by Weir Park and see for yourself!
