The AAABA Tournament is set to go international with the addition of a franchise based in Ottawa, Canada.
The 76th AAABA Tournament is scheduled to begin on Aug. 2 at Sargent’s Stadium at the Point and outlying fields. The 2020 tournament was canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but organizers are hoping to resume play and welcome the newest franchise, the Capital City Reds.
The Reds play in the Perfect Game Collegiate Baseball League in Ottawa. In addition to the college-level league, the Capital City organization fields teams in the Under-18, Under-16 and Special Needs levels.
