History

Following the contraction of the California League's High Desert Mavericks, the Pecos League announced the Yardbirds as an expansion team for the 2017 season to fill the void at Adelanto Stadium. Under the helm of four managers in three seasons, the High Desert Yardbirds were able to amass an accumlative record of 111-79. In its most likely final season ever, the 2019 Yardbirds had a record of 46-18, finished first in the Pacific Division, and broke every record set by former Yardbirds. With a league decision to remove all of the 2019 Yardbirds home games and several player promotions, the team slowly lost key players. Even with the gutting of the team, the 2019 Yardbirds were able to finish 13-7 as a road team and secure a first-round bye in playoffs. Unfortunately, the 2019 Yardbirds fell short and couldn't overcome any more adversity thrown at them by the league.[1][2][2]
