The team competes in the highly competitive Lower Montco League consisting of eight teams from Bucks and Montgomery counties, including: Jenkintown, Fort Washington, Horsham, Huntington Valley, the Morelanders, Mt.

Over the years our team has been comprised of the best and most dedicated ball players from Abington Township who have come to us from schools such as Abington, Bishop McDevitt, LaSalle, St. Joe's Prep, Roman Catholic, Chestnut Hill Academy, Archbishop Wood and Germantown Academy. Tryouts and practices for the team begin in April, with games starting in May and lasting through mid to late July.

The Regional Tournaments are double-elimination tournaments held over a five-day period in early August, and are composed of 64 teams representing the 50 state champions from across the U.S and 14 at-large teams. The eight Regional winners then advance to the double-elimination National American Legion World Series.
