Established in 1987, the Indians, or "K-Tribe" as they were popularly known, played through the 2011 season. The franchise relocated to Zebulon, North Carolina for the 2012 campaign to become the Carolina League version of the Carolina Mudcats. An effort is currently underway to secure a new franchise for the city. A total of 17 managers led the club since the start of the Indians affiliation including two who have since managed the big league club. The Indians played in 3,458 regular season games and compiled a win–loss record of 1,925–1,533.
