The Dayton Dragons are a Class A minor league baseball team in Dayton, Ohio. They are a new team (2000) and belong in the Midwest League. Along with the Mudville Nine, the Dragons are a Class A affiliate of the Cincinnati Reds. The Dragons' uniforms are either green and black or green and white.

Despite being only Class A, the Dragons have no problem filling up their stadium, the Fifth Third Field (named after their sponsor, the Fifth Third Bank -- gotta love mergers!). It's interesting that tickets to Dragons' games are twice as expensive and harder to get than tickets to see the Columbus Clippers, which is a Class AAA team. Perhaps this is because Dayton doesn't have much else in the way of professional sports, or because the Dragons are new.

One of the team's owners is Earvin "Magic" Johnson.
