Pensacola Blue Wahoos TicketsBefore the Pensacola Blue Wahoos came into existence, the team had a long history in Zebulon, N.C. They were originally known as the Carolina Mudcats. They were renamed the Blue Wahoos in 2012. The Mudcats were largely successful during their 21-season run in Zebulon. The team made six playoff appearances, won two league championships and a runner-up finisher. The relocation to Pensacola has seen improved results. While the A-Advanced team did finish outside the playoffs from 2012 to 2014, it made the playoffs each of the last five seasons. The team even made a co-championship under former manager Pat Kelly in 2017. In 2015, professional golfer Bubba Watson bought a minority ownership stake in the team. The Blue Wahoos are coming off a season that saw them finish 76–63 and lose in the first round of the Southern League Playoffs. Get your Blue Wahoos tickets at StubHub.
Who is the manager for the Pensacola Blue Wahoos?Ramon Borrego will return for his second season at the helm for the Pensacola Blue Wahoos in 2020. Borrego was promoted to Double-A after leading the Twins' High-A affiliate, Fort Myers, to the 2018 Florida State League Championship. Coach Borrego has been associated with the Minnesota Twins for 14 years as a coach with 10 years as a manager. He spent seven years as a player in the Twins' organization. Though he never made it to the Major League roster, the team immediately brought him into coaching at the end of his playing days. This season will be his 16th in coaching and 12th as a manager, all with the Twins organization. In his first season at the helm, the Blue Wahoos finished second in their division with a record of 76–63, earning a Wild Card berth in the playoffs.

This rivalry is a yearly round-robin style tournament between the three Southern League Double-A teams, all being named after seafood options. Each year the Blue Wahoos compete against the Jacksonville Jumbo Shrimp and the Biloxi Shuckers. The three teams, only separated by 477 miles, play 60 games per year against each other.
Where do the Pensacola Blue Wahoos play their home games?Admiral Fetterman Field at Blue Wahoos Park is home to the Pensacola Blue Wahoos. The 5,038-seat stadium opened in 2012 to welcome the Blue Wahoos to Pensacola after they relocated. Since the stadium is located within the shores of the Pensacola Maritime Park, the ballpark cuisine pays tribute to that. In addition to standard ballpark food, you can also grab shrimp po-boys, shrimp and grits or fish tacos.

The Yankees also picked a Blue Wahoos alumni to replace the legendary Derek Jeter.
