The Johnstown Oldtimers Baseball Association is the driving force behind the AAABA Tournament in Johnstown. The Oldtimers sponsor the event and provide participating teams with a memorable experience both on and off the playing field.
The Oldtimers undertake a year-long fund-raising campaign to meet the expenses involved in holding a national tournament. Those expenses annually exceed $150,000.
The annual AAABA Hall of Fame banquet and players’ banquet are two major events held in conjunction with the tournament. The Oldtimers handle all aspects of the event ranging from ticket sales to organizing the opening night parade.
