The All American Amateur Baseball Association (AAABA) Tournament has been a summer tradition for more than seven decades. The AAABA Tournament is played each August in Johnstown, Pennsylvania. The tournament celebrated its 70th anniversary in 2014. The first AAABA Tournament was played in Johnstown in 1945. The annual event, which includes 16 teams representing cities throughout the Eastern, Southeastern and Midwest regions of the United States, has been played in Johnstown every year with the exception of 1946 when the tournament was in Washington, D.C., and 1977, the year of the third Johnstown Flood, when the tournament was played in neighboring Altoona, Pa. The AAABA Tournament alumni includes hundreds of future Major League Baseball and major Division I college players.
