Team History[edit]

The Oklahoma City Dodgers, of the Pacific Coast League and briefly in Triple-A West, ended a 1962-2014 run of always being a Houston Astros' or Texas Rangers' affiliate - by being purchased by a group of Los Angeles Dodgers minority owners. The Dodgers farmhands play their home games at Chickasaw Bricktown Ballpark in Oklahoma City, OK.

The Dodger-aligned group's 2014 post-season purchase also brought the ingenious OkLAhoma logo. The Astros were thus stripped of their top farm team, which they had themselves considered buying less than two years before in order to move it to a Houston suburb. [1]

Six days after Endeavor Group Holdings acquired nine minor-league teams in late 2021 and put them under its newly created Diamond Baseball Holdings subsidiary,[2] the OKC Dodgers became the 10th acquisition.[3] Endeavor also owns Ultimate Fighting Championship and Miss Universe.

The Dodgers play Copa de la Diversión Hispanic engagement campaign series as Cielo Azul de Oklahoma City (Oklahoma City Blue Sky).
