The 1964 International League season was the 79th in the league's history, and ended with the Rochester Red Wings winning their first Governors' Cup in eight years.

With Indianapolis and Arkansas moving to the PCL, the IL went back to a single-division, eight-team format.

This would be the final season for the Richmond Virginians.
