The Kansas City Blues are a former minor league baseball team located in Kansas City, Missouri in the Midwestern United States. The team was one of the eight founding members of the American Association.[1]

The Blues did not field particularly competitive teams unil 1918, when they won the AA pennant. The team won again in 1923, and again in 1929. They won the Junior World Series championship that year, defeating the Rochester Red Wings of the International League in a best-of-nine series.[1]

In 1936, the Blues became a farm club of the New York Yankees. They won the AA championships five times in the 1930s and 1940s.

When the American League Philadelphia Athletics moved to Kansas City in 1955, the Blues moved to Denver, Colorado.

The official website of Minor League Baseball calls the Blues teams of 1929 and 1939 two of the 100 greatest Minor League Baseball teams ever.[1][2]
