The Deal

The Scouting Report

In their first season after joining United League Baseball, the Cats have already seemed to growl the loudest of all the league's Texas-based teams. The club opened its 2013 campaign in late May with a 6–2 streak at home, lifting it to the top of the standings. Those six victories included a 9–0 rout of the McAllen Thunder that showcased the Cats' powerful offense, as when first baseman David Bergin launched a home run—one of three so far this season—over the left-field wall to shoo away some roosting pigeons. Now, as the season rolls forward, the Cats' bats need to stay hot to defend LaGrave Field, particularly when the Thunder return later this month to avenge their loss.

Fort Worth Cats

As legend has it, an 1875 article in the Dallas Herald claimed that a live panther was spotted walking the streets of Fort Worth. The city soon became known as the "The Panther City," so when Fort Worth's first minor-league baseball team was founded, in 1888, calling it the "Panthers"—rather than, say, the "Fighting Dandelions"—just made sense. Over the years, journalists shortened the club's nickname to the "Cats," and the team dominated the Texas League through the first part of the 20th Century, at one point winning six consecutive league titles in the 1920s.

After bouncing between affiliations with several MLB teams, the Cats disbanded in 1964. However, the Cats returned in 2002, almost immediately reliving the success of the previous century and capturing three straight titles from 2005–07. Despite never adopting the Panther name, the modern-day Cats have never lost sight of their history, as evidenced by mascot "Dodger" and LaGrave Field's classic design.
