The Myrtle Beach Pelicans began play in the Carolina League in 1999. For the first 11 years of their existence, they were affiliates of the Atlanta Braves. The team was league co-champion in its inaugural season and captured another title in 2000. Over the years, their roster has included many future Braves including Marcus Giles, Rafael Furcal, Adam LaRoche, Jeff Francoeur and Joey Devine. During the 2010 season the team's owner, Chuck Greenberg, co-purchased the Texas Rangers, along with Nolan Ryan. The Pelicans became a Rangers affiliate the following season.

The Pelicans play their home games at Coastal Federal Field in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, which is considered perhaps the top pitchers' park in affiliated baseball.
