2018 AFBL SEASON - The Premier Fall Baseball League in Minnesota


The Advanced Fall Baseball League, Minnesota’s premier fall baseball league, consists of a five-week schedule (September 8th-October 7th).  All teams will play eight games including the season-ending World Series (if qualified).  The AFBL exists to provide ball players with the chance to extend their season while playing against some of the area’s best players and teams.

The AFBL will consist of highly competitive club teams such as the Minnesota Blizzard,  S.W.A.T, Hit Kings, Acceleration MN, MN Millers, Complete Game, and HTP Academy, giving players and teams top tier competition and college exposure.


League Schedule: 10 games
AFBL World Series: October 7th & 8th (Top 4 Teams)
All teams will play 10 games in the fall season.  Teams need to qualify to play in the AFBL World Series.  For teams that don't qualify, they will play a DH on the final weekend (Oct. 6th/7th)

World Series Format
Top four teams play semi-final and final (including 3rd place game) for the AFBL World Series title.  This new format will add to the competitiveness of the league schedule, as teams vie for one of the top four spots.

The entire AFBL schedule, standings, team rosters, directions to the fields and news will all be at available here on

The schedule will be released no later than one week before the season begins.
