In addition to the American League and the National League, the following five baseball leagues are generally considered by most baseball historians to have been major leagues, but the term was not officially used until 1901 when the American and National Leagues combined in competition.

1871 .. National Association of Professional Baseball Players from 1871-1875.
1876 .. National League formed to replace the National Association.
1882 .. American Association, absorbed by the NL in 1891.
1884 .. Union Association, folded after one season.
1890 .. Players League, also folded after just one season.
1901 .. American League, formerly the Western League, a minor league in 1900.
1914 .. Federal League, a minor league in 1913, folded in 1915.

Official postseason playoffs were held from 1884 to 1890 between the National League and the American Association, and the modern day World Series began in 1903.   There are 135 quizzes in this category.
