Jump to: navigation, search

The International Association of Professional Base Ball Players was first formed in 1877 as an alternative to the National League, becoming the first minor league. It was renamed the National Association in 1879 after its last Canadian team dropped out.

In 1888 the name was used again when the International League changed their name to the International Association. Three years later they became the Eastern Association.
