The Wichita PCL team is a Minor League Baseball (MiLB) team of the Pacific Coast League (PCL) and the Triple-A affiliate of the Miami Marlins. They are located in Wichita, Kansas, and will begin play in 2020 at a newly constructed ballpark. They will announce their nickname in November 2019.[1]

They relocated to Wichita from Metairie, Louisiana, a suburb of New Orleans, following the 2019 season, where they were previously known as the New Orleans Baby Cakes.

History

In September 2018, the city of Wichita paid US$2.2 million to the Wichita Wingnuts to break their lease at Lawrence-Dumont Stadium, with plans to demolish it and build a larger ballpark to host an affiliated Minor League Baseball team.[2] The city later announced that a new $75 million stadium will be built to host the Triple-A New Orleans Baby Cakes, who agreed to relocate to Wichita starting in 2020.[3]

They will begin their inaugural season on the road playing against the Round Rock Express on April 8, 2020.[4] Their first home game will be on April 14 against the Memphis Redbirds.[5]
