Representing Charlotte, North Carolina, The Charlotte Knights are a AAA affiliate of the MLB's Chicago White Sox. The team became a AAA team in 1993, after being a AA team for more than fifteen years (1976-1992). The team joined the Independent League after gaining their new status and have been Charlotte's representative in the league ever since. Traditionally the Knights have played their home games at the Knights Stadium in Fort Mill, South Carolina, but this season they are scheduled to move to the BB&T Ballpark in uptown Charlotte.
The Knights play in the South Division of the International League and have won three division titles, the last of which came in 2012. The team also has four minor league titles to its name, the last of which came in 1999. However the team has been unable to replicate its remarkable early success in recent years.
The Durham Bulls are another minor league AAA team, affiliated with the MLB's Tampa Bay Rays. The Bulls are based in downtown Durham, North Carolina and play in the South Division of the International League, which they joined in 1998. The franchise was founded in 1902, but has been disbanded several times over the years, before becoming a stable single A team in 1980.
Compared to MLB teams, minor league teams are not that famous outside their cities. However, the Durham Bulls achieved international fame with the release of the highly successful 1988 film Bull Durham, which starred Kevin Costner in the lead role and revolved around the Bulls franchise. One of the primary reasons behind the Bulls AAA affiliation with the Tampa Bay Rays was the success of the movie.
The Bulls have won fifteen division titles as a franchise and have an even more impressive thirteen league championships. Out of these league titles, four have come in the International League, with the team's last triumph coming in 2013.
