Gulf States League (1976)

leave a comment

The Gulf States League existed for one season during the summer of 1976.   The league was classified as Class A by National Association President Bobby Bragan, but operated as an independent league and none of the six member clubs had an affiliation with a Major League parent club.  The Gulf States League represented cities in Louisiana and Texas.

Following the 1976 season, the league re-organized as a Texas-only league and changed its name to the Lone Star League.  The Lone Star League lasted one final season and then folded after the summer of 1977.
