The Lynchburg Hillcats are a minor league baseball team in Lynchburg, Virginia. They are a Class High-A team in the Carolina League, and currently are a farm team of the Atlanta Braves. They had been a farm team of the Pittsburgh Pirates since 1995, with the Cincinnati Reds fulfilling the final year in 2009 of a two-year agreement with the Pirates. The Hillcats play home games at Calvin Falwell Field; refurbished and renamed in 2004, the stadium seats 4,291 fans. They are the only team of the Atlanta Braves' affiliates that are not owned by the parent club, as well as the only affiliate who does not share the "Braves" mascot with the parent club.
