The Sunset League was a minor league baseball circuit that operated from 1947 through 1950.

This league held baseball clubs mostly based in the United States, as well in Canada and Mexico, and expanded from six to eight teams from 1949–1950.

For the 1951 season, the circuit merged with the Arizona–Texas League to form the Southwest International League.
