Alabama-Florida League

The Alabama–Florida League was a low-level circuit in American minor league baseball that existed from 1936 through 1939 and 1951 through 1962. In 1940–1941 and from 1946–1950, the absence of clubs based in Florida caused the league to change its name to the Alabama State League.

The Class D loop's longest-serving members included clubs in Andalusia, Brewton, Dothan, Enterprise, Greenville, Ozark and Troy, all in Alabama, and the Florida cities of Fort Walton Beach, Graceville and Panama City.

Montgomery, Alabama, the largest city to be represented in the league, was a member for six seasons (1957–1962).

In 1962, the league's final year, the Pensacola Senators, a Washington farm club managed by Wayne Terwilliger, won the pennant by 22 games and led the league in attendance. It was the only Alabama–Florida League team to post a winning record.
