About Elmira

It was a quick 0-2 tournament for Elmira during their first year in 1947. Of course, it's never easy when your first two opponents are Washington and Baltimore. Elmira battled hard to a 6-3 loss to Washington and a 3-2 heartbreaker against Baltimore.

The city was not represented in the tournament again until 1966 when they lost in the Altoona regional. In 1967, Elmira won it's first and only AAABA game by defeating Allentown 3-2 in Engh Field. Loses to Buffalo and Detroit on Thursday eliminated the VOA Chiefs from the tournament.

The final year for the franchise was 1968 and was another winless entry. Buck Templeton's club fell to Fort Wayne 7-6 on the opening day and then to New Jersey 5-1 in their final tournament appearance.
