Looking for a 12U Cooperstown Coach

Thursday, October 19, 2017

    Every summer, the 12U AYBA Out-of-Park All-Star team makes a trip to Cooperstown, NY to play in a week long tournament with 100 teams from around the country. It is an amazing experience for the players and their families as they play at least 7 games and get to visit the baseball Hall of Fame.

    Aside from the Cooperstown tournament, the team normally plays in a handful of local tournaments beginning in late May, with the season wrapping up with the Cooperstown tournament in early July 2018. The coaching staff is made up of a Head Coach and 3 or 4 assistant coaches at minimum, for a total staff of 4 or 5. If you have an interest in coaching or being on the coaching staff of the 2018 - 12U all-star Cooperstown team, please contact Bob Heidish.

AYBA New Bat Rules

Thursday, October 19, 2017


2018 Bat Rules

A new bat standard for 2018 (USABat) was announced this year(2017) and our sanctioning body, Dizzy Dean, has decided to adopt it beginning in January 2018.  As a result, the AYBA Rec and Select programs will be adopting the new standard.  Older BPF 1.15 bats bearing the USSSA stamp will NO LONGER be legal in league play

The NEW Bat Rules are as follows:

EFFECTIVE JANUARY 1, 2018, WITH THE EXCEPTION OF THE -3 BAT (BBCOR CERTIFIED), ALL OTHER 2 5/8 IN MINUS FACTOR BATS (-5, -7,-9, ETC.) MUST BE YBBCOR CERTIFIED WITH THE USABat LICENSING STAMP ON THE BAT IN ORDER TO BE USED FOR LEAGUE AND TOURNAMENT PLAY. 2 5/8 INCH MINUS FACTOR BATS -5, -7, -9, ETC., USED IN 2017 WILL BE ILLEGAL TO USE IN 2018. 

Here is a link to more information on the USABat standard: https://usabat.com/about/ 

The new bats are now in the stores and available online.  Be aware when shopping for new bats as there are probably great deals out there on 2017 and older model bats that will no longer be legal in AYBA league play in 2018.  

Note: the new bat rules do not apply to AYBA Travel teams as they do not play under the Dizzy Dean jurisdiction.

Rainy day at the ballpark? No problem! We got it covered with the New 6300 square foot baseball pavilion at Wills Park, which includes 8 batting cages, 2 pitching lanes, an open warm-up area, and energy efficient LED lighting

Alpharetta Youth Baseball Association, in partnership with the Alpharetta Recreation and Parks Department, announced the grand opening of the covered baseball pavilion this past Saturday. The park was buzzing with excitement from players, as representatives from AYBA and the City of Alpharetta officially cut the ribbon to open the new pavilion.

“We are proud of the partnership and commitment between AYBA and the City, which provided a successful realization of this project,” said Scott Williamson, AYBA president. “This new baseball pavilion is a fantastic addition to Wills Park and will benefit ball players for many years to come.”
