The Chattanooga Lookouts are a minor league baseball team based in Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA. They are named for nearby Lookout Mountain. The team, which plays in the Southern League, has been a Double-A affiliate of the Los Angeles Dodgers major-league club since the 2009 season. The Lookouts play in AT&T Field, located in Chattanooga. Opened in 2000, the stadium seats 6,160 fans. From 1930 through 1999, the Lookouts played at Engel Stadium.[1]



In 1931, the New York Yankees played an exhibition game against the Lookouts. During the game, a 17 year old girl named Jackie Mitchell pitched for the Lookouts and struck out Major League greats Lou Gehrig and Babe Ruth. A few days after the game, baseball commissioner Kenesaw Mountain Landis voided Mitchell's contract, claiming that baseball was "too strenuous" for women.[2]

During previous owner Joe Engel's tenure, the Lookouts won four championships – three with the Southern Association and a fourth with the South Atlantic League. For a time, Engel led the charge to own the Lookouts privately, with the help of several hundred fans as shareholders from 1938 to 1942. In 1939, as a privately-owned franchise under coach Kiki Cuyler, the Lookouts claimed a championship.

Notable former Lookouts players that have made it to the Major Leagues include Baseball Hall of Famers Burleigh Grimes, Harmon Killebrew, and Ferguson Jenkins. Other notable former players include Alvin Davis, Mark Langston, Deion Sanders, and Pete Rose Jr. (son of Pete Rose). Ben Broussard (Cleveland Indians), Adam Dunn (Chicago White Sox), Austin Kearns (Washington Nationals), Trevor Hoffman (Milwaukee Brewers), Jason LaRue (St. Louis Cardinals), Joey Votto (Cincinnati Reds), Jay Bruce (Cincinnati Reds), Homer Bailey (Cincinnati Reds), Edwin Encarnacion (Toronto Blue Jays), Kenley Jansen (Los Angeles Dodgers), and Jerry Sands (Los Angeles Dodgers) play in the MLB.

The team, which plays in the Southern League, is the Double-A affiliate of a major league ballclub. From 1987 through 2008, the Lookouts were the Double-A affiliate of the Cincinnati Reds.[1] For the 2009 through 2014 seasons, the Los Angeles Dodgers will serve as the parent club.[3][4]


All Chattanooga Lookouts games were broadcast on WDOD (1310 AM) until the 2011 season.[5] For the 2011 season, games will be broadcast on WALV-FM (105.1 FM, "ESPN Chattanooga"). Larry Ward and Will Poindexter continue to host the broadcasts. Audio of the games is also streamed live on the website of the Chattanooga Lookouts and at[6]
