The author of the very good report on the Gulf Coast Rookie League did an excellent job in his report. He

did however fail to mention there were two other Gulf Coast League teams in the NAPBBL. This is the first

of the two. This league began as a Class D League in 1907 and operated in that class also in 1908 and 1926.

The league was upgraded to Class C in 1950 and upgraded again the following year 1951.
