The Shreveport Captains began play in the Texas League in 1971 when the El Paso Sun Kings relocated to Shreveport, Louisiana. In 2001, the team became known as the Shreveport Swamp Dragons and after two seasons, they moved and became the Frisco Rough Riders.
In their first fifteen years (1971-1985), the team won no playoff series, but made the playoffs in the next ten years (1986-1995), winning three championships. In their last season of play, Shreveport won the Eastern Division first half title, then set a record for most losses in a half in the second half.
The team won Texas League titles in 1990, 1991, and 1995. The team produced no MVPs but 6 Pitchers of the year: Alan Fowlkes (1981), George Ferran (1986), Dennis Cook (1987), Paul McClellan (1991), Steve Bourgeois (1995), and Keith Foulke (1996).
