- New York State League (1885-1917)
"This article refers to the original incarnations of the New York State League, which operated between 1885 and 1917. For the modern league, see
New York State League"
The first New York State League in 1885, was actually the second of the many names the
International Leagueused before settling on its current moniker.
The second New York State League was a six team league for one season in 1889. Oneida was expelled from the league on July 12, and Seneca Falls disbanded August 19.
The third and longest running New York State League was a solid league that lasted from 1899 through
1917. The league was classified as a class B league in 1902 when the National Association of Professional Baseball Leagueswas formed. The loop, which also had teams in Pennsylvania, was also remarkably stable in terms of membership for any minor league of that era. Binghamton and Utica lasted the whole 19 year run.
