Copper Country Soo League

From BR Bullpen

In 1905 there was a class D league with four teams that was known as the Copper Country Soo League. The league first attempted a merger with the Northern League on June 1, but it was unsuccessful and both leagues went back to their regular schedules. The next year the merger with the Northern League was successful, and the union produced the Northern-Copper Country League in 1906.
