2011 Season

All teams from the previous season stayed in the league for 2011. This season just making the playoffs gave you a good shot at success, as two teams made the playoffs with 81-81 records and one with an 82-80 record. In the All-star series the National League team won 5 games to 2 and now leads the all-time series 3-2 (when a 7-game All-star series has been played). The following teams won division titles: American Fork, Pullman, Santaquin and Salem. Wild card teams included: South Sound, Dodgeville, Puyallup, Maple Valley. American Fork knocked out the defending champion Dodgeville in the ALCS to reach the LFBL championship series for the 4th time. They would face Santaquin who knocked off Maple Valley in the NLCS and reached the finals for the 3rd time. American Fork out-lasted Santaquin to win the LFBL championship for the 2nd time. They became the 4th team with 2 or more championships. At the end of the season three teams would leave the league: SLC Angels, South Hill Aardvarks and Minnesota Heroes.
