Gulf States League

From BR Bullpen

The Gulf States League was one of the few failed minor league experiments of the 1970s. It operated in 1976 as a class A league. Three of the six teams survived into 1977 when it was renamed the Lone Star League. None of the Gulf States League teams were affiliated with major league organizations.
