From 1968 to 1973, Memphis had a team in the AA Southern League called the Memphis Blues. The city then received an International League franchise from 1974 to 1976 also called the Memphis Blues. Memphis returned to the Southern League in 1978 where the team was called the Memphis Chicks until 1997. This name harked back to the Memphis Chickasaws, who were members of the Southern Association from 1912 to 1960. Since its return to AAA in 1998, the team has been called the Redbirds, in honor of its association with the St. Louis Cardinals.
