The Atchison Canaries is a fictional Midwest Minor League baseball team based in Atchison, Kansas. Amelia Earhart was born in Atchison in 1897 and is the city's pride and joy. Earhart went on to become a hugely successful pilot, including being the first woman to fly solo across the Atlantic Ocean in 1932. Earhart's first plane was nicknamed "Canary" for it bright yellow color. Thus, the team's mascot is a little yellow plane.
