History

The Huron Phillies began play in 1965 after Grand Forks had first hosted the Huron Packers in 1920 and 1921. Huron was a minor league affiliate of the Philadelphia Phillies (1965-1968) and Chicago Cubs (1969-1970), playing the last two seasons as the Huron Cubs . The franchise folded in 1970 and the Northern League folded in 1971.[1]
