The Palm Beach Cardinals serve as the Class-A Advanced affiliate of the St. Louis Cardinals. Palm Beach has represented the Cardinals in the Florida State League since the 2003 season. Before 2003, the franchise was located in Port Charlotte, Fla. and was an affiliate of the Texas Rangers. The Charlotte Rangers, as they were known during that era, made six playoff appearances in their 16-year run in Port Charlotte. Those six trips to the postseason resulted in two Florida State League Championships in 1989 and 2002. The St. Louis Cardinals became the parent organization in 2003. They relocated the team to Palm Beach and renamed them after their Big League squad. By 2005, the Cardinals had won the third league title in franchise history. Although they experienced a playoff drought between 2009 and 2014, the Cardinals got things turned around and made the postseason three out of the next four seasons. With postseason appearances in two of the last three seasons, including another league championship, the 2020 Cardinals look to get back to the top.
