NABF is a nonprofit organization hosting regional and national Championship tournaments held coast to coast.
These tournaments range in age divisions from 9 & Under through Unlimited.
At the 2017 National Amateur Baseball Federation (NABF) Annual Meeting, the Board of Directors and NABF Franchise Member Representatives in attendance voted unanimously to name the ALS Association as the official charity partner of the NABF. The NABF is now officially partnered with the ALS Association in the fight against amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (more commonly known as ALS or Lou Gehrig's disease), and in spreading knowledge and awareness of the disease as well.
The ALS Association is the only national nonprofit organization fighting Lou Gehrig’s disease on every front: supporting cutting-edge research, enhancing access to clinical care, and promoting better public policies. Their nationwide network of chapters comprises one team with a single mission: to discover treatments and a cure for ALS, and to serve, advocate for, and empower people with ALS.
ALS is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord. Eventually, people with ALS lose the ability to initiate and control muscle movement, which often leads to total paralysis and death within two to five years of diagnosis.

"I am currently attending Washington & Jefferson College in PA where I am majoring in Chemistry and am taking the necessary pre requisites for dental school as well. I am also continuing my baseball career in college and am looking forward to playing a game I love and that has taught me so much for the next four years. Upon achieving my bachelor’s degree, I hope to either attend dental school or graduate school to further my Chemistry background for an eventual career in the sciences." - Alexander "Alec" Jackson
