The Lincoln Saltdogs are a professional baseball team based in Lincoln, Nebraska, in the United States. The Saltdogs are a member of the North Division of the American Association of Independent Professional Baseball, which is not affiliated with Major League Baseball. Since the 2001 season, the Saltdogs have played their home games at Haymarket Park.

The Saltdogs were formed when the Madison Black Wolf moved to Lincoln after the 2000 season. The team was a member of the Northern League from 2001 to 2005. After the 2005 season, the Saltdogs (along with the St. Paul Saints, Sioux City Explorers and the Sioux Falls Canaries) left the NL to found the American Association.

The Saltdogs made the playoffs in each of their first two years in the American Association. In both 2006 and 2007, they finished with the league's best overall regular-season record, winning three of the four North Division titles (both the 1st-half and 2nd-half titles in 2006, and the 1st-half title in 2007). Their 14-game winning streak in 2007 is the longest in team history. In 2008, Lincoln finished with a 50-45 record, missing the playoffs for the first time since 2004. They did finish the second half with a 29-19 mark, and were not eliminated from playoff contention until the next-to-last day of the season. The Saltdogs have the best overall record (172-112) of any team in the three-year history of the American Association.
