You mean aside from major league baseball between 1871 and 1968?

With or without league playoffs the same tie-breaking options were used by different minor leagues at different times.

That said, leagues without playoffs almost always used a tie-breaking playoff to resolve the pennant winner. Leagues with playoffs have more frequently used the other options (though the question of co-champions was usually limited to situations where the league championship series could not be completed for one reason or another).

Also leagues not having intraleague playoffs, while rare at the major league level (each league didn't have regular playoffs until the split into two divisions in 1969), were very common at the minor league level. In 1949, for example, at the height of the affiliated minor leagues when there were 59 in operation, 54 of them used the Shaughnessy playoff format where the top four teams made the playoffs. Another 2 leagues used a split-season format, and 1 league had four teams qualify for the playoffs but used a round-robin first round rather than direct matchup series. That means just 2 out of 59 minor leagues that year did not have some sort of playoffs.
