North Atlantic League

From BR Bullpen

Jump to: navigation, search

The North Atlantic League was one of many minor leagues to pop up after the end of World War II. Like most of those, it didn't last a decade, running from 1946-1950 as a class D circuit.

There was also an independent league called the North Atlantic League. It ran in 1995 and 1996, then its surviving members dispersed in 1997, joining the Northeast League and Heartland League.
