MLB has renamed the divisions in Minor-League baseball.
The Frisco RoughRiders are now part of the Double-A Central. They used to be part of the Texas League which was founded in 1888. There had been several changes along the way.
The teams competing in the newly named Double-A Central League remain mostly the same.

A formal name the the Double-A Central league is expected to be announced at a later date so we’ll see if it remains the Texas League as it’s been known since 1888.
