PRACTICES AND GAMES
Fall Baseball will have one game on Sundays, possibly one game during the week and one practice. Actual team schedules will not be built until after registration has closed and teams have been assigned. AJAA Fall Baseball will be an internal league unless there aren't enough players signed up.  If there aren't enough players per league, teams will play outside leagues and could travel to those leagues (local organizations).

Practices and games can be held at our various facilities:  AJAA Baseball/Softball park located at CR 625 and 100 S, Avon Middle School North fields, Avon Middle School South fields and Light & Life Church on 100S.
