The Dixie Series was an Interleague Minor League Postseason Series pitting the playoff champions of the Southern Association and the Texas League in a best-of-seven matchup from 1920 to 1958. The series was not held from 1943 to 1945 due to World War II. It was revived for one year in 1967, pitting the Southern League champion against the Texas League champion.
