The Columbus RedStixx were a minor league baseball team in South Atlantic League, and a farm team of the Cleveland Indians.

The RedStixx played home games at Golden Park, except during 1996. The team's home games were moved to Ragsdale Field on the campus of Columbus State University, while Golden Park was renovated to accommodate events of the 1996 Olympics. The name "RedStixx" refers to the Red Sticks, a faction of Creek Indians of the area.

History

In 1991, the South Atlantic League expanded, adding two teams, including one in Columbus. The team carried the nickname of the parent club, the Cleveland Indians, during its inaugural year. They took the name "RedStixx" for the remainder of their existence.

In 2002, the team announced their intention to move to Eastlake, Ohio following that year's regular season. The team renamed themselves the Lake County Captains. Although the Redstixx left Columbus, a new team, the South Georgia Waves arrived in town the next year.
