Northwest Arkansas Naturals TicketsThe Northwest Arkansas Naturals are the Double-A affiliate for the Kansas City Royals. The team's history dates back to 1987 when the San Diego Padres were the parent organization of a new Double-A team known as the Witchita Pilots. From the inaugural 1987 season through the 1994 season, the Padres would maintain control of the team. The Pilots won the Texas League championship in their first season before becoming the Wichita Wranglers for the 1989 season. The winning continued as the Wranglers went to the playoffs three more times and won another league championship before becoming the Double-A squad for the Royals for the 1995 campaign. The Wranglers went to nine more postseasons between 1995 and 2007 before relocating to Springdale. The move to Springdale brought about a new name, the Naturals, but the same winning tradition. The Naturals made the playoffs their first four seasons in Arkansas including another title in 2010. Though they've missed the post season the last two years, the Naturals are looking to bounce back for 2020. Get your Northwest Arkansas Naturals tickets at StubHub today.
