The 1912 International League season was the 1st in the league's history using that new name (it had been known as the Eastern League for 20 years), to reflect the league's Canadian and American membership. The name would stick for over 100 years, even after the Canadian teams had left (with brief appearances by Cuban and Puerto Rican entries in the middle of the 20th Century). The title change had been pushed by Ed Barrow, the IL president. The Toronto Maple Leafs won the title, rallying to overcome the 3-time defending champion Rochester Hustlers.
