The Pennsylvania State Association was composed mostly of major league affiliate teams. During the nine-year run of the league there were eleven cities, all from Pennsylvania, that represented the league. Elmer M. Daily served as president of the league the full nine years of its existence. The Butler Yankees won five of the league's nine championships, winning back-to-back titles in 1937 and 1938 and winning the final three titles for the league in 1940, 1941 and 1942. There were at least sixteen known players from the league who managed to make it to the majors.
