All-Star Game History
The AAIPB selected the name of the league from previous leagues that once existed in the same general geographical locale.
The first American Association formed in 1902 as an independent minor league. After shake-ups within Major League Baseball, many independent minor leagues went into decline and the AA shuttered in 1963.
Just six years later, in 1969, the American Association came back as an AAA farm system for the Majors with the expansion of the MLB. Less than three decades later, another MLB realignment caused the dissolution of the league; several of its teams were absorbed into other AAA leagues.
History was on the AA’s side and it appeared again as the American Association of Independent Professional Baseball. It has a terrific line-up of teams, bringing the excitement of professional baseball to the mid-west and central states--including several cities lacking a major league presence. These teams are still feeding the big leagues with fresh players and potential All-Stars, such as David Peralta, Chaz Roe and Tanner Scheppers.
