The Georgia-Florida League may as well have been named the Georgia-Tallahassee League, because Tallahassee had been the only Florida representative since the Panama City team left after one season in 1935. In 1951, that lone Tallahassee team announced its intention to leave Florida as well. The Tallahassee Pirates made the decision to move to Brunswick Georgia, returning professional baseball to that city for the first time since 1915.
