About the Book

This book presents season-by-season information for the original South Atlantic Baseball League, which operated for 60 years in the Carolinas, Georgia and Florida. (In 1963, with the collapse of the Southern Association, the league was promoted to Double-A status and renamed the Southern League.) Each chapter opens with a season summary and is followed by league standings, team records and rosters, and statistics for each player.
