List of Southern League champions
The Southern League of Minor League Baseball is one of three Double-A baseball leagues in the United States. The circuit has been previously known as the South Atlantic ("Sally") League (1904–17; 1936–42; 1946–63) and the South Atlantic Association (1919–30). A league champion is determined at the end of each season. Champions have been determined by postseason playoffs, winning the regular season pennant, or being declared champion by the league office. Currently, the first- and second-half winners within each division (North and South) meet in a best-of-five series to determine division champions. Then, the North and South division winners play a best-of-five series to determine a league champion.
- Score and finalist information is only presented when postseason play occurred. The lack of this information indicates a declared league champion.
