The Troy Tigers (a.k.a. Troy Dodgers and Troy Trojans) were a minor league baseball team, based in Troy, Alabama that played in the Alabama State League and its predecessor the Alabama–Florida League from 1936–1941. At that point the team moved to Tuskegee, Alabama and was briefly known as the Tuskegee Airmen before shutting down because of World War II. The Troy team reformed after the war in 1946 and lasted through 1949.

They were affiliated with the Cleveland Indians, Cincinnati Reds, Brooklyn Dodgers and Detroit Tigers.
