The Shreveport–Bossier Captains were a professional baseball team based in Shreveport, Louisiana, in the United States.[1][2] Following the 2011 season, the team was sold to new ownership and moved to Laredo, Texas, to continue play as the Laredo Lemurs. The Captains were a member of the South Division of the American Association of Independent Professional Baseball, which is not affiliated with Major League Baseball. From the 2003 season to the 2011 season, the Captains played their home games at Shreveport's Fair Grounds Field.

The latest incarnation of the Captains was founded in 2003 as the Shreveport–Bossier Sports, after the Class-AA Texas League Shreveport Swamp Dragons moved to Frisco, Texas, to become the RoughRiders. On January 8, 2009, the Captains unveiled their new name (themed as a pirate captain rather than a tribute to Captain Henry Miller Shreve, the founder of Shreveport), logo, and color scheme; unlike prior teams, this incarnation of the Captains also encompasses neighboring Bossier City in its locale name.

After the 2010 season, the Captains' owners were awarded an American Association team to be based in Amarillo to replace a United League Baseball team. At first it was assumed the Captains would be relocating to Amarillo. However, the Pensacola Pelicans' owners later purchased the Carolina Mudcats and folded the American Association incarnation of the team for the 2011 season so that the Mudcats could relocate to Pensacola for the 2012 baseball season. This move was expected to keep the Captains in Shreveport and in the American Association for the foreseeable future. However, the Shreveport–Bossier Captains announced on November 29, 2011, that the team had been sold to a new ownership group and would move. The team was purchased by Laredo Baseball Investors, LLC.
