9/29/23 : Final Tally -Minor League Playoff/Championship Teams

All of the fourteen minor league champions have now been determined.  Oklahoma City will play Norfolk on Saturday in Las Vegas in an overall Triple A level Championship Game.  I’ve listed below each of the leagues, the teams that made the playoffs and the eventual league champions.


Also listed are the playoff teams by organization.  The Dodgers had six playoff teams amongst their seven affiliates to lead the way, they also had the most championship squads, two.  The Phillies along with six other organizations had three playoff qualifiers.  Five organizations had no playoff qualifiers amongst their minor league affiliates.  All shown below.
