The Milwaukee Chicks were a women's professional baseball team which played in the All-American Girls Professional Baseball League in 1944. They were managed by Max Carey, former star player for the Pittsburgh Pirates and Brooklyn Robins and a future Hall of Famer.

Although the Chicks won the 1944 AAGPBL championship, they couldn't compete with the Brewers for ticket sales, and the franchise moved to Grand Rapids, Michigan.

On August 27, 2000, the surviving Chicks were honored by the Milwaukee Brewers before a game against the San Diego Padres. Tributes to the club may be found in Miller Park.
