The Heifer League (HL) is a professional baseball league that operates in Canada and the United States. It is the AA-level minor league for the Bull Baseball League, and is one step below the AAA-level Cow League and one above the A-level Calf League.

The league consists of 20 teams, all of which are affiliated with a Bull League club. The teams are located in four Canadian provinces (British Columbia, Alberta, Ontario and Quebec) and ten US states.

A league champion is determined at the end of every season.

History[edit]

The HL was formed in 2013, at the same time as the Milk League, in order to fill out the minor league system.

Structure and season[edit]

The HL is divided into two subleagues, the Barn League and the Pasture League. Each league consists of two divisions, an east and a west. Teams play a 90-game schedule, which commences the first Sunday after the start of the Bull League, in mid-May, and then runs until late August.

The other rules are nearly identical to the AAA-level Cow League.

Championship and interleague play[edit]

At the end of each season, the two divisional leaders in each of the subleagues face each other in a best-of-five League Championship Series. The winners of each series advance to play in a best-of-five final, the Heifer Cup Series.

There is an interleague All-Star Game played at the mid-point of the season.
