The league will attempt to over-schedule games on all playable days/dates within the online described league calendar (listed on the AYL Baseball homepage). Doing so, teams will have more games scheduled than the described minimum. Should the league deem a game needs to be canceled (at the BOD's discretion) the game will not be made-up unless a team has less than the 8 game minimum season. Schedules will be prepared with teams playing up to two (2) games per week in March.

The single elimination playoffs will begin in Early May, 2021, with the C-Prep championship games played Mid May, 2021.
