AAYBA, (American Amateur Youth Baseball Alliance) was co-founded in 1989 by Carroll Wood (Woody) and Greg Moore both from the greater St Louis, Missouri Metro area.
AAYBA hosts our youth World Series program in Flower Mound, Texas. The goal of the program is to allow kids of all playing abilities to compete on a National level for a Youth World Series title. The World Series is "Open" to all teams with no qualifying necessary as AAYBA "qualifies" it's participants during the initial round of play utilizing our drop-down format. The drop-down format essentially seeds teams based on their on-field performance and then drops them down according to the results on the field into as few as two divisions to as many as five divisions per age group. Champions are crowned in each division.
