The Chattanooga Black Lookouts was a professional baseball team based in Chattanooga, Tennessee, which played in the Negro Leagues. They were established in 1920, only to play for one season. They were reestablished in 1926 to play for two seasons, serving as a farm team of the Homestead Grays of the Negro Northern League.
