The Medicine Hat A's were a Rookie League affiliate of the Oakland Athletics, playing in the Pioneer League and located in the Canadian city of Medicine Hat, Alberta. They played for a single season, 1977, and their home field was Athletic Park.


The A's arrived in Medicine Hat in 1977, an expansion team for the Pioneer League along with the Calgary Cardinals.[1] The A's had relocated from Boise, Idaho, where they had played two seasons as the Boise A's in the Northwest League.[1] The A's finished in fifth place within the six-team Pioneer League;[2] four members of the team would go on to appear in the major leagues.[3] After the season, the team changed their affiliation to the Toronto Blue Jays[4] and played 25 seasons as the Medicine Hat Blue Jays.
