The Clinton LumberKings are a Midwest League Class A minor league baseball team based in Clinton, Iowa, USA, affiliated with the Seattle Mariners.

Clinton joined the Midwest League in 1954 and is the oldest franchise in the league. The team has had several different major league affiliations: the Pirates (1954-58 and 1966-68), the White Sox (1959-65), the Pilots/Brewers (1969-70), the Tigers (1971-75), a Tigers/White Sox co-op (1976), the Dodgers (1977-79), the Giants (1980-94), the Padres (1995-98), the Reds (1999-2000), the Expos (2001-2002), and the Rangers (2003-2008).

Aside from its time as the C-Sox (1960-65) and the Pilots (1966-76), the team used the parent major league team's nickname before adopting the LumberKings name for the 1994 season.

Their home park is Alliant Energy Field, built in 1937 as Riverview Stadium. It was renamed in 2002 after Alliant Energy bought the naming rights to the stadium.

The team's attendance record of 127,251 was set in 1988.
