Virginia League (1894–96)
The Virginia League (1894-1896) was a minor league baseball organization active in central Virginia. In 1894 it fielded six teams: the Lynchburg Hill Climbers, the Norfolk Clam Eaters, the Petersburg Farmers, the Richmond Crows, the Roanoke Magicians, and the Staunton Hayseeds/Newport News-Hampton Deckhands (the team seems to have switched cities in the middle of the 1894 season). In 1895, the league was rated class B. The teams during the 1895 season were the Lynchburg Hill Climbers, the Norfolk Clams/Crows, the Petersburg Farmers, the Portsmouth Truckers, the Richmond Blue Birds, and the Roanoke Magicians. In 1896, the Norfolk team became the Braves, the Portsmouth team became the Browns and then moved to Hampton and became the Clamdiggers.
