List of Texas League Champions

The Texas League of Minor League Baseball is one of three Double-A baseball leagues in the United States. The circuit was founded in 1888 and ran through 1892. After two years of dormancy, it was revived as the Texas Association in 1895, the Texas-Southern League in 1896, and the Texas League from 1897 to 1899. With the exception of three years during World War II (1943-1945), the Texas League has been in continual operation since 1902. A league champion is determined at the end of each season. Champions have been determined by postseason playoffs, winning the regular season pennant, or being declared champion by the league office. From 1952 to 1964, the league recognized both a pennant winner and a playoff winner; they were declared co-champions. Currently, the first-half and second-half winners within each division (North and South) meet in a best-of-five series to determine division champions. Then, the North and South Division winners play a best-of-five series to determine a league champion.[1]
