The American League President was the president of the American League of Major League Baseball until 1999, when the AL and National League completely merged.

Following the 1999 season, the American and National Leagues were merged with Major League Baseball, and the leagues ceased to exist as business entities. The position of the American League President and National League President became honorary.
