Game Changer AA Scoreboard

Welcome to MAALB!

Welcome to the website for Montana and Alberta's Class AA, A, and B American Legion Baseball leagues and teams.

The Class AA division is a Senior (19-years-old and under) league comprised of teams whose players come from high schools that have a combined, or total, enrollment of more than 1,000 students.  The league's web page can be accessed from the TEAMS tab above. The state champion advances to the Northwest Regional. The regional champion advances to the ALB World Series, which has been broadcast on ESPN during the second week of August since 2011.

The Class A division is also a Senior league, but is comprised of teams whose players come from high school that do not combine, or total, 1,000 students. Although the state champion does advance to a regional tournament, there is no world series for this level of teams.

The Class B division is a Junior league (17-years-old and under). It has only been in existence for a few years and, currently, there is no state tournament for this level.

    *** CLASS aA STATE TOURNAMENTS ROTATE THROUGH THE AA CONFERENCE.  THERE ARE NO BIDS TAKEN TO HOST THE AA TOURNAMENT. 
    • Class A Districts.  District rotations can change by teams agreeing to switch years up to host.  Another situation that can change this order is if teams drop out and later come back in.  If a team does drop out and later returns back into the District it will be placed into the bottom of the rotation.

    • Class A State. The State A tournament rotates through each District.  Teams selected to host will be based on a tournament bid and selection process.

    • Class AA State.   The State AA tournament is set as a fixed rotation of AA teams.  If new teams are added to AA they are added to the bottom of the rotation.
