The New York-Penn League or New York-Pennsylvania League is a class A minor league. The league currently operates as a fourteen team circuit. It is a short-season league (i.e. the season does not begin until early June), with most of its players being first-year draftees coming out of college or second-year players who were drafted out of high school and have played in Rookie class the year before.

The Batavia Muckdogs were league champs in 2008. In 2005 the league held its first All-Star Game.

The first New York-Pennsylvania League operated with six teams in 1890-1891.

The second New York-Penn league operated as a class B league from 1923-1932, before moving up to class A in 1933. The League was renamed the Eastern League for the 1938 season and that league still exists to this point. Five different cities competed in all 15 years of this version of the league, forming a stable base.

Another league that eventually took the New York-Pennsylvania name was formed in 1939 as the PONY League (for Pennsylvania, Ontario and New York), a name it kept until 1956, when it took the now-abandoned New York-Penn name. Its geographic extent now greatly exceeds the two original states, with teams located in Maryland, Massachusetts, New Jersey, Ohio and Vermont, in addition to New York and Pennsylvania.
