Next year will mark the International League’s 125th anniversaryâ€”it’s the oldest minor league in sports and has turned out such players as Babe Ruth and Jackie Robinsonâ€”and league president Randy Mobley said plans are in the works to mark the occaision.
The first official announcement, which will include the unveiling of an anniversary logo, will come on July 24 in Rochesterâ€”the only team to be a part of the International League since it was found in 1883.
“We want to make the announcement in the heart of the league’s history,” said Mobley, noting that Buffalo and Syracuse have also been a part of the league for most of its history. “We thought it would be a fitting location.”
