Affiliation: Los Angeles Dodgers

League: Southern League (AA)

Home Field: AT & T Field

Location: Chattanooga, Tennessee

Notable Alumni: Harmon Killebrew, Burliegh Grimes, Ferguson Jenkins, Trevor Hoffman, Adam Dunn, Pete Rose Jr.

Fun Facts: This franchise has been around since 1885 (that’s 124 seasons of Lookout baseball). The team played an exhibition game against the Yankees in 1931. At one point during the game, 17 year-old female pitcher Jackie Mitchell struck out Lou Gerhig and Babe Ruth. Just days after the game, MLB commisioner Kenesaw Mountain Landis voided Mitchell’s contract, stating the baseball was too strenuous for females. Mascot name is Looie. In 2009 the Lookouts won the Larry MacPhail trophy for best promotions by a Minor League Team.

Always loved this team name/logo combo. Pretty cool. Thanks for the history lesson on the she-pitcher too. Had no idea. Struck out the Babe AND Gehrig? Must’ve had some arm. I wonder what else she had…

I always liked the Lookouts logo, too. It’s original yet simple. This is a team I would love to go see because of it’s history. An episode of ‘Baseball’s Golden Age’ was about Mitchell, and her striking out the Yanks. Really peeked my interest. This is one of the stories that makes baseball so great.

Emma-I love this logo, too, and think it’s one of the best in baseball. This post gets more hits by far than any other on this site, so other fans must really love it, too.

The Greatest Minor League Baseball Blog of All Time

This is a very simple game...

You throw the ball. You catch the ball. You hit the ball...Of course, baseball fans know that this line from Bull Durham is far from true, part of the humor of the movie and a huge part of the fun of the game. This blog is a space to talk about baseball, being a baseball fan, all of those things that make the game fun and the Angels, because they make baseball fun for me.
