Before becoming the RedHawks, the team was originally known as the Oklahoma City 89ers from 1962 to 1997 when the team played at All Sports Stadium at the state fairgrounds. The franchise's original name made reference to the Land Run of 1889, which led to the founding of Oklahoma City. Following the 1997 season, the team became the Oklahoma RedHawks. The city's first professional baseball name change in 35 years, corresponded to the team's move to its current home, Chickasaw Bricktown Ballpark, and to the team's return to the Pacific Coast League in 1998. The team was renamed the RedHawks after the red-tailed hawk, a bird of prey commonly seen throughout Oklahoma. When announcing the new name, team officials noted the raptor's four-foot wingspan and migration patterns, which always return the bird to Oklahoma. A hawk is also part of the state's official song.
