In 1987 the Beaumont Golden Gators moved to Wichita, KS and became the Wichita Pilots. In its inaugural year, Wichita finished with the 5th best record (69-65) in the Texas League, but beat the El Paso Diablos and the Jackson Mets in the playoff to win the TL championship. In 1988, Wichita dropped to the worst record (60-76) in the league. After two years they were re-christened the Wichita Wranglers.
