The Milk League is a professional baseball league operating in Canada and the United States. The league is classed as a Short Season A level league, which is one level above the rookie-level Florida Rookie League, and one level below the A-level Calf League.

The league was founded in 2012, and since that time has been made up of 20 teams divided into two divisions of ten teams each, all of which are affiliated to a Bull League parent club. The teams are located in Ontario, Quebec, New York and Illinois for the eastern teams, and British Columbia, Alberta, California, Nevada, and Texas for the western teams.

There are no playoffs, however at the end of each season the team with the best record is awarded the Milk League Championship.

History

The Milk League was originally founded in 2012 as a rookie-level league. The league was originally divided into two subleagues of two divisions each, however, after the 2016 season, the Yogurt League was folded and the teams moved into the Cream League, with the two divisions (east and west) now made up of 10 teams each.
