The Johnson City Cardinals were a Minor League Baseball team based in Johnson City, Tennessee.[1] The Cardinals were affiliated with the St. Louis Cardinals organization in their final season and played in the Rookie Appalachian League.[1] The team won ten league championships, most recently in 2019. They played their home games at TVA Credit Union Ballpark.[2]

The start of the 2020 season was postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic before ultimately being cancelled on June 30.[3][4] In conjunction with a contraction of Minor League Baseball beginning with the 2021 season, the Appalachian League was reorganized as a collegiate summer baseball league, and the Cardinals were replaced by a new franchise in the revamped league designed for rising college freshmen and sophomores.[5]
