Before 1930, Syracuse teams had almost always been the Syracuse Stars. When Syracuse re-entered the International League in 1934, they adopted the moniker "Chiefs." They used the name through '55, when they left the league for the Eastern League. Still named the Chiefs, the team moved to Allentown in '57. When Syracuse again got a team in the IL in 1960, they were once more the Chiefs. In 1997 they finally (sort of) changed names, becoming the Syracuse SkyChiefs. Since 1967 the team has only been affiliated with three different major league clubs - the New York Yankees ('67-'77), Toronto Blue Jays ('78-'08) and Washington Senators ('09-present). After the 2006 season, the Syracuse team returned to the Chiefs moniker.
