Columbus Redstixx Clippings (MC 177)


Organizational Note

According to the Wikipedia article, the RedStixx were a minor-league baseball team in Columbus, Georgia from 1991 to 2002. They were a Class A team in the South Atlantic League, and a farm team of the Cleveland Indians.

The RedStixx played home games at Golden Park, except during 1996 when the team's home games were moved to Ragsdale Field on the campus of Columbus State University. Golden Park was renovated to accommodate events of the 1996 Olympics. The name "RedStixx" refers to the Red Sticks, a faction of Creek Indians of the area.

In 2002, the team moved to Eastlake, Ohio following that year's regular season. The team renamed themselves the Lake County Captains. After the Redstixx left Columbus the South Georgia Waves arrived in town the following year.
