Our thoughts and prayers go out to our Valley Youth League partner Myl League, as well as the town of Mentone. The ball diamonds sustained significant damage from this evening’s strong storms.

‼️PLEASE SHARE‼️

This is my 10th year at AYL. Over the past decade I have seen a league that was on the verge of being bankrupt and not knowing how we would be able to continue operations, grow into what I feel is the best youth league in Indiana!

We watched as our numbers fell and kids left for different leagues. We struggled to put enough teams together to play. We had to branch out and play with other leagues just to have a season. It was rough and we felt helpless! But through all that we slowly started to turn it around. Our previous president, Lisa Fear, was a savage! She spent countless hours pouring her heart and soul into the league, securing huge grants and organizing massive upgrades to our facilities. I was so fortunate to work beside her for so long and was able to take over a league that was like no other.

I’m proud to say that we were able to see our 8U girls win back to back state championships just to turn around and do it again at the 10U level. We became a facility that Town and Country leaned on to host some of their biggest tournaments. Not only did I have the privilege of directing the 2018 8U boys State Championship, but I was able to do it watching my own son play on our Valley team that finished third that year.

Through all the ups and downs, all the Facebook posts, this is the hardest one I’ve ever had to make..

With a heavy heart and tears in my eyes, I’m sad to announce that we will be cancelling the 2020 season at AYL.

This was not a decision we took lightly, but as a board, we feel it is the best thing as we go through unprecedented times as a community and a nation.

We will revisit the ‘Sandlot’ option at a later date. And will get any info regarding that out to everyone when the time comes.

Full refunds will start to be issued tomorrow. Please be patient with us while those go out.

AYL will be back next season!

Thank you for for your understanding and support.

Stay strong and stay safe. We are all on the same team right now and we will get through this together!

‼️PLEASE READ AND SHARE‼️

We have recently been getting questions about plans for this season so I would like to address them and the current situation in regards to how we will proceed.

First and foremost, the 2020 season at AYL has NOT been cancelled. We plan on going along with our school corporation in regards to activity. Governor Holcomb has already ordered all Indiana schools closed until May 1st, with that our Opening Day will not take place as scheduled on May 2nd. We are hoping once we get cleared we can quickly get an opening day organized and be able to play the bulk of our season. Business as normal!

BUT...

If schools are closed for the remainder of the year and certain restrictions are still in place, we will see a drastic effect on our season. We want to be socially responsible and follow all guidelines put forth by the state/federal government. We will not be placing a uniform order nor will we schedule pictures. We have basically put a hold on all expenditures until we know what we will be able to do this year. Since our primary sponsors are the small local businesses that are the ones that are feeling the most economic impacts right now, we will not be asking nor accepting any sponsorship money if we can’t play the full season.

If we will not be able to play in May and are cleared to resume normal activities in June... we will play! But.... it will not be the normal league we have been used to!

We will be organizing the official AYL Sandlot League to play the month of June. Basically we will just set up some days and times for each age group, choose teams and play ball! We will provide umpires, turn on the scoreboard, and have a limited concessions menu. If it comes to this it will be free of charge and we will organize as many games as we can.

For the time being we have cancelled walk-in registration scheduled for March 28th. We will leave online registration open through April. If we have to move towards our sandlot league all fees will be refunded. With our online registration system it is extremely easy to issue instant refunds. If you have already registered and would like to pull your child now and want to be refunded please feel free to message us on here, email us at [email protected] or call/text (574)328-0109.

We are hopeful we can still have our regularly scheduled season, but just know, we will do everything we can to play baseball/softball this year at AYL.

Thank you for your support and understanding in these uncertain times! Please stay safe and use this time to enjoy the extra family time!

Online registration will be open until March 28th. We will also have another walk-in registration March 28th from 9am-noon at the Akron Fire station.

As of right now we have no plans to cancel or even delay the 2020 season due to the COVID-19 Pandemic. As the season draws closer we will monitor and take any necessary actions when the time comes.

We are planning to have our first practices the first and second weeks of April. After all registrations are received we will split teams and send out further info.
