フロンティア・リーグ

Quillorama Stadium (Trois-Rivieres, QC, Canada) - 2013

1993年に8チームで発足。
同じ年に発足したノーザン・リーグが2010年限りで新リーグのアメリカン・アソシエイションに吸収されてしまったのでインディペンデント界の最長老リーグとなった。
90年代は傘下のマイナーリーグが見捨てていった既存の球場を活用していたが、近年は新球場を手土産に新加盟するフランチャイズの増加に加え、
解散したノーザン・リーグのチームを一部吸収しリーグの質は著しく向上している。
2019年のシーズン終了後には同業のCan-Amリーグを吸収合併し現在インディ界最多の16チーム。
五大湖周辺とカナダを含む北東部の各州に広く分布。
2022年のレギュラー・シーズンは5月12日に開幕、9月4日まで96試合を戦う。
