Seven years after the Columbus Jets left town, the Columbus Clippers began play in the International League in 1977. For the club's first two seasons, they were an affiliate of the Pittsburgh Pirates. In 1979, they became a farm club of the New York Yankees and remained so for over a quarter century. The club was a Washington Nationals affiliate from 2007-2008 before becoming the Cleveland Indians' AAA affiliate in 2009.

The Clippers moved into the new Huntington Park in 2009.
