The Oklahoma City RedHawks are a minor league baseball team based in Oklahoma City, Oklahomamarker. The team, which plays in the Pacific Coast League, is the Triple-A affiliate of the Texas Rangers. The RedHawks play in AT&T Bricktown Ballparkmarker, located in the Bricktown Entertainment Districtmarker in downtown Oklahoma City. The team was originally known as the Oklahoma City 89ers from 1962 to 1997 when the team played at All Sports Stadium (now demolished) at the state fairgrounds. The original name made reference to the Land Run of 1889, which led to the founding of Oklahoma City. Following the 1997 season, they became the Oklahoma RedHawks. After the 2008 season, the team added "City" to their name. The minor renaming was accompanied by new logos and a new color scheme.

The Oklahoma City 89ers began play in 1962 as a minor league affiliate of the Houston Colt .45's. In 1973, all new players came in as a three-year connection with the Cleveland Indians was established. A later affiliation with the Philadelphia Phillies lasted from 1976 until 1982.

In 1983, the Texas Rangers became the parent club, a relationship that would continue as the 89ers adopted all new colors and uniforms along with the nickname "RedHawks" in 1998 in the move to the newly-built Bricktown Ballpark. The crowds are consistently large at the park and the RedHawks have been very competitive with the exception of a couple of seasons.
