Junior World Series

From BR Bullpen

The Little World Series was renamed the Junior World Series in 1932. The annual match-up between the top teams in the American Association and International League continued through 1962 (except for no series in 1935), when the AA folded. When it was re-established in 1970, several more Junior World Series were played before the institution died off in 1975.
