BO Knows Chicks...

We picked up a bunch of vintage minor league snapbacks yesterday and above is one of my favorites. The team is the Memphis Chicks (originally short for Chickasaws) and you might not know this but Bo made his professional baseball debut as a member of the Royals' Class AA Memphis Chicks on June 30, 1986. He spent most of the season with the Memphis Chicks in the minor leagues before being called up for regular duty in 1987, where he had 22 home runs, 53 RBIs and 10 stolen bases as an outfielder for the Royals. The logo above though was used in the 90s when Derek Lee played for them. Lee was the 1996 MVP of the Southern League with the Memphis Chicks and a year later made his major league debut with the San Diego Padres. The Memphis Chicks are no longer a Minor League team because In 1998, they moved to Jackson, TN and became the West Tenn Diamond Jaxx, AA affiliate of the Chicago Cubs.
