Illinois-Missouri League


Illinois-Missouri League

The Illinois-Missouri League was an American minor league baseball league. It began operations in 1908, and continued through 1914.

1908

The league was formed. Newly formed teams in Canton, Illinois, Galesburg, Illinois, Hannibal, Missouri, Havana, Illinois, Macomb, Illinois, and Monmouth, Illinois joined the league.

1911

New teams in Champaign-Urbana and Taylorville, Illinois joined the league.

As Lincoln won the first half outright and tied for the second, it seems to have been judged to be the winner.

1914

New teams in LaSalle, Illinois and Ottawa, Illinois formed and joined the league. Kankakee and Lincoln both folded on July 3, before the season ended.

Ottawa and Streator left the league to join the Bi-State League. The teams in Champaign and LaSalle folded, and the league itself folded.
