The Washington Red Birds was the predominant name of a minor league baseball team located in Washington, Pennsylvania between 1934 and 1942. The Red Birds played in the Pennsylvania State Association. Known as the Washington Generals in 1934 and 1935, the team was affiliated with the New York Yankees. After a four-year hiatus, the Red Birds represented Washington in the league, as an affiliate of the St. Louis Cardinals. The team and the league both disbanded in 1942, due to the strains of World War II.[1]
