Overview


Professional baseball was introduced to Chattanooga in the summer of 1885, and the Lookouts moniker and legacy dates to 1909. Baseball in Chattanooga presents the shapers of the franchise, most notably Joe Engel, and the players who found success, glory, and even infamy in Chattanooga. These players, including Harmon Killebrew, Mark Langston, and Gil Coan, represented the Lookouts in two ballparks that had one thing in common: watching baseball there made it easy to love the game.
