    The Fort Worth Cats (originally the Fort Worth Panthers) were a minor league baseball team that played in the Texas League from 1884 through 1958. They were affiliated with the Indianapolis Indians in 1933, the Brooklyn Dodgers from 1946 to 1956, and with the Chicago Cubs from 1957 to 1958. The team joined the American Association in 1959 and then merged with the Dallas Rangers in 1959 to become the Dallas-Fort Worth Rangers. The teams separated again in 1964, when the Cats rejoined the Texas League but they merged again the following year and became the Dallas-Fort Worth Spurs.

    Several of the Panthers teams were selected as among the top 100 minor league teams of all time.[1]
