Lansing Lugnuts TicketsThe Lansing Lugnuts are the Single-A affiliate for the Toronto Blue Jays. Today's Lugnuts franchise can trace their history back to the 1989 season and the city of Waterloo, Iowa. The 1989 Waterloo Diamonds' roster was made up of players from the Baltimore Orioles, Oakland Athletics and the San Diego Padres. By 1990, the Padres had taken full control of the team and made it their Single-A affiliate. The Padres relocated the team to Springfield, Illinois, for the 1994 season and renamed them the Sultans. Low attendance in Springfield prompted another move for the team and before the 1996 season they relocated to Lansing, Michigan. The Chicago Cubs became the parent organization for the Lugnuts in 1999 through 2004. During that time the team became a perennial playoff threat, winning the Midwest League title in 2003. Toronto took over the team prior to the 2005 season. While they have yet to win a championship under the Blue Jays' umbrella, the team has made seven playoff appearances in 14 seasons.
