Lancaster Scouts

First season: 1993

Years in league: 1993-94

Ballpark: Beavers Field

The Lancaster Scouts were another of the Frontier League's original teams. Unlike many of the cities in the Frontier League, Lancaster has very little minor league history. The last previous professional team before the Scouts was in 1911!

The Scouts had three sub par half-seasons before tying Chillicothe for first-place in the second half of 1994. They then knocked off the Paints before succumbing to the powerful Erie Sailors in the finals.

The Scouts were a casualty of the Frontier League's westward expansion. They became the Evansville Otters in 1995. Beavers Field is currently used by Ohio University-Lancaster.
