AA is also considered a developmental Division with an increased level of competitive play compared to the Farm Division. Coaches are encouraged to emphasize player instruction and development. Players range from 7 - 10 years old. Live pitching is introduced with walks being limited to two per inning per team.
Players are placed on teams based upon evaluation ratings and team needs. Each player must play a minimum of four innings in a six-inning game. Ten players are assigned to field positions each inning, and all roster players bat whether assigned to a field or not. Standings are not kept during the regular season. Upon completion of the regular season, a post-season playoff tournament is held. The First and Second Place teams from this tournament receive trophies.
* For an 7 year old to be eligible to try out for the AA division, he/she must be recommended by the division commissioner and receive a 2/3 vote of approval from the Operations Committee. For the Commissioner to recommend a player, the player must be considered an "impact player" who will be drafted within the first half of the draft.
