List of Southern League Champions

The Southern League of Minor League Baseball was a Double-A baseball league in the United States from 1964 to 2020. A league champion was determined at the end of each season. Champions were determined by postseason playoffs, winning the regular season pennant, or being declared champion by the league office. In the final championsip season of 2019, the first and second half winners within each division (North and South) met in a best-of-five series to determine division champions. Then, the North and South Division winners played a best-of-five series to determine a league champion.[1]

The Birmingham A's/Barons won 7 Southern League championships, the most among all teams in the league, followed by the Jacksonville Suns (6) and Montgomery Rebels (5).
