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.
Structure and season
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
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.
The HL has crowned one team to be a league champion each season since 2013.
