MiLB announced that they are returning to the league names that were used prior to the 2021 season. While some of us were speculating that MiLB was using the generic league names as a placeholder until they were able to obtain corporate sponsored league names, they said that it’s because MLB didn’t have the rights to the historical names. I’m glad that they are back to the names that were used in 2019 and prior, but it’s disappointing that they have the gap in the records where the names weren’t officially used.
One other item of note is that they are considering the South Atlantic League as the High A league and Carolina League as the Low A league. I was tracking the team shifts and didn’t realize that moving those two leagues between levels was also part of the plan. And they are officially changing the term Low A to Single A, although having High A and Single A as terms for the two different levels doesn’t really make as much sense.
