From BR Bullpen

Jump to: navigation, search

The American League was originally known as the Western League from 1894 to 1899. The league was reorganized and renamed by Ban Johnson in 1900 and played as a minor league that year. Its intention, however, was to compete with the National League, and did so in 1901. For history from 1901 to the present, see American League.
