The Bull League was formed in the 1989 season. Initially, there were 20 teams in the league, divided into four divisions of five teams each, within two subleagues, the Central League (later renamed to the Lake League), and the Southern League (later renamed to the American Eagle League).

The players in the league were a mix of fictional ones, many with humorous or satirical names, and real historical active or retired Major League Baseball players.

Statistics and sources

Very little survives in league archives from the inaugural season. There are team rosters, but the stats for the players vary from actual 1989 playing stats to fictional prior season stats.
