- Nine out of the fourteen members of the US team participating in the modern Olympic Games in Athens (1896) were B.A.A. athletes.
- The B.A.A. launched the first US marathon, the Boston Marathon, in 1897.
- The B.A.A. pioneered and actively promoted many of today’s popular sports, including football and water polo.
- The original B.A.A. club house, in the historic Back Bay section of Boston, is the precursor of today’s health club.
Still, the B.A.A. story is not simply one of athletic achievements and firsts. It’s also the dramatic story of people and the times in which they lived—a social history that unfolds in nineteenth-century Boston but takes readers around the world, up to the present, and includes a large and international cast of characters. A wonderfully illustrated history,The B.A.A. at 125 highlights the Boston Athletic Association’s important role in American sports history.
