The Federación de Béisbol Aficionado de Puerto Rico (a.k.a. Béisbol Doble A) is an AA semi professional spring and summer baseball league based in San Juan, Puerto Rico. The league was founded in 1940. The season starts in Mid-February, and ends with the Carnaval de Campeones (Champions' Carnival) final in September. They play on a weekend schedule (Friday, Saturday and Sunday). Their All-Star game is held soon after the regular season and before the playoffs. The Montañeses de Utuado are the defending champions, having defeating the Guayama Brujos in six games.

League structure[edit]

As of the 2014 baseball season, it currently has 48 teams, grouped into 2 leagues (Atlantic League and Caribbean League), with 4 divisions of 6 teams on each league. This 2013 season saw the relocation of 4 teams and a divisional realignment due to the geographical relocation, Villalba went to Ceiba and became the Marlins, Carolina went to Luquillo and became the Turistas, the original Cataño franchise moved to Corozal and became the Plataneros., and Toa Baja moved to Cataño and became the new Lancheros. However six teams were eliminated after the 2014 season Toa Alta, Moca, Luquillo, Ceiba, Gurabo and Orocovis. There is a new alignment for the 2015 season not yet present to the public.

Regular Season Format[edit]

The regular season consists of 20 games, in which every team faces their divisional opponent 4 times during the season (2 games at home, 2 games on the road), and at season's end, the top 4 teams in the division qualifies for the postseason.

Playoffs[edit]

Divisional semifinals and finals[edit]

The top 4 teams in every division qualifies for the postseason, first in the divisional semifinals, where there are paired according to the regular season finish, and the top seed faces the 4th seed, and the 2nd seed faces the 3rd seed. The winners of the divisional semifinals faces each other for the Divisional Championship, and the winner of that series wins their respective division and advanced to the Carnaval de Campeones or Champions' Carnival as they are known in Puerto Rico. Both the Divisional Semifinals and Finals are a Best of Seven series.

Carnaval de Campeones[edit]

The Carnaval de Campeones (Champions' Carnival) is the second phase of the playoff system in the Beisbol Doble AA where all 8 divisional champions face each other in order to crown the national champion, in which is divided between the 4 divisional champions for both the Atlantic League and the Caribbean League. The pairings of all the Champions' Carnival series are determined by the aggregate of the teams overall regular season and divisional playoffs winning percentage. The Pairings goes also the top seed against the 4th seed between the leagues' divisional champions, and later the winners of that first round advance to their respective league championship finals, and the winners of that league finals face each other in the National Finals. All three rounds are a Best of Seven Format as well.
