The 1992 season of the Bull League was simulated in May of 1992. The league ended the season after the All-Star Game and the playoffs began based on the two teams chosen as league champions by the league, based on win-loss record at the half season mark.

It is the shortest official championship season on record. The Ohio Oxen of the LL played a one round playoff with the Seattle Salts of the AEL. The length of the series and the scores remain unknown as the records for the games were not kept by the league. Only the final result is known, the Salts were declared the Bull Cup Champions for the season.


Final Standings

The season was half the scheduled length, and teams had played either 15 or 16 games, instead of the originally planned 30. The final standings are therefore as of the All Star Game break.[1]

Notable Events

  • Nevada pitcher South Paw pitched 27.0 innings in 3 games, for 3 complete games, allowing just 1 hit. He therefore had two no-hitters, allowing no earned runs. Although he had an ERA of 0.00, he did not meet the qualifying threshold of 30.0 innings for the ERA title in the AEL.
  • Billy Kidd earned a Triple Crown, the only batting Triple Crown awarded in the Bull League. However, because of the short length of the season it is not regarded as an official award.
