Valdosta Millionaires

The Valdosta Millionaires were a minor league baseball team, based in Valdosta, Georgia from 1913 until 1916. However the team's roots can be traced back to 1906 as the Valdosta Stars of the Georgia State League. The Millionaires became Valdosta's representative in the Empire State League, when it resumed operations in 1913. While the Millionaires claimed first place in the league that season, the second place Thomasville Hornets defeated Valdosta, four games to two, in the best-of-seven series.
