The constant changing finally came to a stop in 1976 when the Charlotte Orioles were formed. The Orioles laid the foundations of the Charlotte knights. The Orioles claimed the title of league winners in 1980, managed by Grady Little, who would later go on to manage the Boston Red Sox. The team won the league again in 1984. Just when things seemed to be going perfect for the Charlottes, tragedy struck in 1985 when a fire broke out and decimated the Crockett Park, the home of the Knights. Attributed to arson, the fire forced the Knights to move to a makeshift stadium with a small capacity.
The Charlotte baseball team was bought by George Shinn in 1987 and he brought many changes with him. One of the changes was renaming the team through a voting contest. Hence the team was named the Charlotte Knights. The team moved to a newly constructed stadium in South Carolina, the Knights Stadium, in 1990.
