Burlington Indians (Carolina League)

In addition to the Appalachian League version of the Burlington Indians, from 1958-64 a team representing Burlington, N.C., of the same name competed in the Carolina League (Class B through 1962; thereafter Class A) as a Cleveland farm club. During its seven years of existence, the Carolina League Indians won one league championship. Its players included future major leaguers Luis Tiant and Duke Sims.

Burlington Indians (Central Association)

A third team called the Burlington Indians was based in Burlington, Iowa, and played in the Class C Central Association in the late 1940s.

  2. ^ There are differing figures on the capacity. Ball Parks of the Minor Leagues lists it at 3,000 while Ballpark Digest lists it at 3,500; the team's website does not make a distinction. A boxscore from Opening Night of the 2006 campaign shows a paid attendance of 3,622, so it seems more reasonable to side with the 3,500 capacity.
