New York State League

From BR Bullpen

Jump to: navigation, search

The first New York State League in 1885, was actually the second of the many names the International League used before settling on its current moniker.

The second New York State League was a six team league for one season in 1889. Oneida was expelled from the league on July 12, and Seneca Falls disbanded August 19.

The third and longest running New York State League was a solid league that lasted from 1899 through 1917. The league was classified as a class B league in 1902 when the National Association of Professional Baseball Leagues was formed. The loop, which also had teams in Pennsylvania, was also remarkably stable in terms of membership for any minor league of that era. Binghamton and Utica lasted the whole 19 year run.

In 2007 Jay Acton established a fourth New York State League set to begin in the summer of 2007 as an independent loop. Acton had previously been involved in minor league baseball in the '80's when he and author Roger Kahn bought an interest in Miles Wolff's NY-Penn League franchise, the Utica Blue Sox, for the purpose of writing the book "Good Enough to Dream." The new NYSL plays in the Metro New York City area and will begin its fourth season in 2010. Nearly 150 players have gone on to play for higher level professional teams.
