About Us

The Clinton LumberKings are the only remaining charter member of the Midwest League. They joined the league for its inaugural season in 1954, then known as the Mississippi-Ohio Valley League, but professional baseball in Clinton, Iowa owns even deeper roots. The current home of the LumberKings was built in 1937 as a project of the Works Progress Administration for an estimated cost of $150,000 and was played on and off again until 1954. Since joining their current league, the LumberKings have won two Midwest League championships, 1963 and 1991, and seen over 280 players graduated to the Major Leagues. The reason for the LumberKings longevity in the Clinton community has been the community's ownership of the club. The team is run by board members and an executive board which has kept the team in Clinton while other teams have been moved to larger markets. Dating back to 1937, the team has been affiliated with 16 different Major League franchises; beginning an affiliation with the Miami Marlins in 2019.
