Whitey Ford and Middle Atlantic League

I had a Whitey Ford baseball card when I was younger and noticed that his first professional season was pitching for Butler Yankees.

Upon Whitey's passing, I decided to check his minor league record and other teams in the Middle Atlantic League in 1947 were:

Erie Sailors
Johnstown Johnnies
Niagara Falls Frontiers
Oil City Refiners
Uniontown Coal Barons
Vandergrift Pioneers
Youngstown Colts

Would be interesting to know history of that league and teams.

There were just 6 teams in 1951 which appears to be last year for the league (started in 1946)
