[edit]

The Burlington Bees play in the Midwest League and have been an affiliate of the Kansas City Royals since 2001. They play their home games at Community Field in Burlington, IA. The name was first used for the Burlington entry in the Mississippi Valley League in 1924. That team played through 1932. In 1954 the name was revived by the Burlington team in the Three-I League and was kept when the team moved to the Midwest in 1962. From 1982 through 1992 the name was unused as the Burlington entry in the MWL took on the name of the parent MLB club.

The Burlington Bees from Iowa are not to be confused with the Burlington (NC) Bees.
