The AAA Division is the most competitive Minor League division and is great preparation for playing in Major Leagues or Intermediate Leagues in future seasons. Generally, AAA players have at least 2 years of organized baseball experience, although this is not a requirement.
As in all MLL divisions, managers emphasize fundamentals, teamwork, player development and fun. In AAA, players pitch and walks are allowed, although a maximum-run-per-inning rule is in place to keep games moving and to help in developing pitchers. Scores are kept, outs are recorded, and league standings are published on the MLL website. No hitting or pitching statistics are published however.
Players who register for the AAA must attend an evaluation. Evaluations are listed on the website calendar. Specific times will be published on the website and updates will be emailed to players that have registered for AAA. The purpose of the assessments is to ensure that players are registered for the division that best matches their playing level and to assist in forming balanced teams within each division. Players who desire to be on a Majors team but are deemed at a AAA quality level will be placed on a AAA team.
Players in the AAA Division are eligible for selection to an All-Star Team that will participate in a post-season tournament at the District level and potentially at the State level in July.
Players ages 9 to 11 on August 31, 2018.
Players should have one-year of experience in organized baseball unless they are 11.
