Team Info

The Pilots played one season in 1969. The team was originally not scheduled to begin play until 1971, however the date was moved 2 years earlier to begin play at the same time as the expansion Royals as to keep the number of teams even. The early start proved to be a disaster as the team played home games at Sick's Stadium which was barely equipped for a minor league team, let alone the Pilots. The team struggled on the field and was at the bottom of the league in attendance. It became obvious the team could not continue under those conditions while a new stadium was built and moved after just one season.
