Southern California Trolley League

From BR Bullpen

The six-team Southern California Trolley League only existed in 1910; disbanding on June 12. It was a class D circuit. All the teams were located in the greater Los Angeles area, which meant that teams could go from game to game by street-car, hence the league's name. Both the Los Angeles Maiers and Pasadena Silk Sox folded on May 3.
