Youngstown is a former center of steel production that is located in northeastern Ohio, on the Mahoning River, 15 miles southeast of Warren, OH and 50 miles west of Akron, OH.

In recent years, Youngstown has taken steps to re-establish its once robust tradition of amateur baseball. During the 1930s, '40s and '50s, the city had hosted the National Amateur Baseball Federation (NABF) tournament; and in 1946, Youngstown park officials were praised by NABF President Henry Schubert for maintaining some of the best sandlot fields found in the country. The city is currently home to the Mahoning Valley Scrappers.
