History

Professional baseball in Charlotte dates to 1901, with the formation of the Charlotte Hornets. They were an independent team until 1937, when the Washington Senators, now the Minnesota Twins, purchased the team. The Hornets would remain affiliated with the Senators/Twins for 35 years. In 1940, Calvin Griffith, the son of Senators owner Clark Griffith and future owner of the Senators/Twins, built a 3,200-seat park in Charlotte's Dilworth neighborhood, Calvin Griffith Park. It would be the home of Charlotte baseball for the next half-century. Year 1901 (MCMI) was a common year starting on Tuesday (link will display calendar) of the Gregorian calendar (or a common year starting on Monday [1] of the 13-day-slower Julian calendar). ...

After several years on the lower rungs of the minor league totem pole, the Hornets joined the Class A South Atlantic League in 1954. They had previously been members of the South Atlantic League in the 1920s. The South Atlantic League became a AA league in 1963 and renamed itself the Southern League in 1964. In 1972, the team renamed itself the Charlotte Twins. Minnesota dropped its affiliation after the 1972 season. Unable to link up with a new team, the Twins disbanded.

The current incarnation of Charlotte baseball began in 1976, when wrestling promoter Jim Crockett, Jr. bought the Asheville Orioles, the AA affiliate of the Baltimore Orioles, and renamed them the Charlotte Orioles. Griffith Park was fixed up and renamed Jim Crockett, Sr. Memorial Park (popularly known as Crockett Park). The team, popularly known as the O's, won Southern League titles in 1980 and 1984.

In March of 1985, Crockett Park (mostly wood-framed) was destroyed by a massive fire after a high school baseball game. An investigation revealed that the cause of the fire was arson. The Crockett family built a 5,500-seat makeshift stadium immediately afterward, which served as the O's home for three years. In 1989, George Shinn, founder of the NBA Charlotte Hornets, bought the team from the Crockett family.

For the 1996-1997 seasons, the Knights were the AAA affiliate of the Florida Marlins. Before the 1998 season, Shinn sold the Knights to N.C. businessman Don Beaver, who negotiated a AAA affiliation agreement with the Chicago White Sox. The Knights won another International League title in 1999 as the White Sox' top affiliate. Notable former Knights under the White Sox affiliation include current White Sox pitcher Jon Garland and White Sox position player Joe Crede.

Recently, the Charlotte City Council and Mecklenburg County Commission approved a land-swap agreement which, barring potential legal action, will permit construction of a new AAA-sized stadium in downtown Charlotte. If built, it will be located near Bank of America Stadium, home of the Carolina Panthers.

Knights Stadium - Charlotte Knights (1094 words)
Knights Stadium became the 26th minor league park I had visited since the beginning of 2001, but it was the first one I’ve been to that had an upper deck, which was the home of the $5 general admission seats.
Although the Knights led all of AA baseball in attendance in 1991 and 1992 when they were in the Southern League, attendance has dwindled since the Knights became a AAA franchise when the International League expanded in 1993.
Charlotte has discussed building a new downtown ballpark, but talks stalled after the city turned its efforts to luring an NBA team back to town after the Hornets bolted for New Orleans, and a new downtown basketball arena will replace the 14-year “old” Charlotte Coliseum before the Knights return to North Carolina.

CHARLOTTE -- Labor Day marked the end of the regular season for the Charlotte Knights, but talk of bringing baseball to Uptown Charlotte shows no signs of slowing down.
Officials with the Knights are working with the Charlotte Center City Partners to move their baseball stadium from Fort Mill to uptown, but they still have work to do to gain support from city and county leaders.
There is one thing every Knights fan would like to see, a championship for their home-town team.
