The professional American football franchise currently known as the Indianapolis Colts was originally based in Baltimore, Maryland, as the Baltimore Colts from 1953 to 1984. Named in honor of Baltimore's history of horse breeding and racing at Pimlico Race Course, this was the second incarnation of the "Baltimore Colts" after the first one played from 1947 to 1950 in the old All-America Football Conference for three years and moved to the National Football League (NFL) with a few other AAFC teams after the 1949 merger, but playing only one season. The 1953–83 Baltimore Colts team played its home games at Memorial Stadium on 33rd Street during its entire tenure in Baltimore before the franchise relocated to Indianapolis, Indiana, in March 1984.
