Logo of the Month: Erie Seawolves

eswLocation: Erie, Pennsylvania

League: Eastern League (Double-A)

Affiliation: Detroit Tigers

Home Field: Jerry Uht Park

Fun Facts: The Erie Seawolves started out up in Welland, Ontario as the Welland Pirates, affiliated with Pittsburg, and played in the short season NY-Penn League. The Pirates relocated to Erie in 1995 to become the Seawolves. This move caused the Frontier League franchise Erie Sailors to move themselves, over to Jamestown, NY. There was another Sailors team in Erie, who also played in the NY-Penn League, but they relocated to become the Hudson Valley Renegades before the independent team used the Sailors name. The Seawolves were upgraded to Double-A status when the Eastern League added two new teams in 1999. They became affiliated with the Angels after the upgrade for two seasons, then signed with the Detroit Tigers in 2001. Since 2003, the team has been rumored for another relocation, but upgrades to Jerry Uht Park have kept the team in place for now. Their mascot is named C. Wolf, and can be seen all over Jerry Uht Park, and in the Erie community. I’m really looking forward to visiting Erie, and taking in my first Seawolves game this summer. Seeing another Tigers affiliate will be a plus also, as many Whitecaps alumni will probably be in the lineup.

Notable Alumni: Justin Verlander, Alex Avila, Curtis Granderson, Omar Infante, John Lackey, Cameron Maybin, Cody Ross

I wish there’d be a Double A team in Ottawa. Rumours about Erie relocating last season. I was excited, but someday there’ll be one back up here.

I wish you and Ottawa the best on getting a team. I was in Binghamton a couple years ago, and their didn’t seem to be much of a fan base there. I hope your snow is melting, because ours doesn’t seem to be going anywhere.
