Midland RockHounds TicketsMidland, Texas, has been home to minor league baseball since the Chicago Cubs put their Double-A team there before the 1972 season. Outside of one season that saw the squad share a league championship, the team only had four other winning seasons during their 13-year run in Midland. At the end of the 1984 season, the Cubs moved their Double-A affiliation elsewhere, and the California Angels took over the team in Midland. The change in parent organization didn't really generate a change in results, though. Between 1985 and 1998, the Midland Angels only made the playoffs twice. The Oakland Athletics became the parent organization in 1999 and have been so since. The A's changed the team name to the Midland RockHounds, and the squad has put up the most successful run in Midland history. Since 1999, the RockHounds have won six Texas League championships, including four consecutive league titles between 2014-2017.
