The Sherman Twins minor league baseball team had three incarnations. The first played in the Texas Association in 1923, the second in the East Texas League in 1946 and the third in the Sooner State League in 1952. The team was based in the United States city of Sherman, Texas.

The 1923 club featured Otto McIvor, who played in the major leagues in 1911.[1] McIvor also managed the team for part of the season, helping lead the team to a league co-championship with the Austin Rangers. The 1946 team had major leaguers Larry Drake, Buck Frierson, Pat McLaughlin, Monty Stratton and John Whitehead. It was managed by Guy Sturdy.[2] Bennie Warren managed, and played for, the 1952 squad.[3]
