At the end of the 2018 season, the Miami Marlins filed an application with Minor League Baseball to relocate the New Orleans Baby Cakes to Wichita, KS becoming the Wichita Wind Surge starting in 2020. Explaining the team's name, assistant general manager Bob Moullette stated: "Wichita is the air capital of the world, and we're paying homage to the wind. It's a mighty force. It's powerful to us, and timeless."
