Portland Sea Dogs TicketsThe Portland Sea Dogs were established as an expansion team for the 1994 season. The team spent its first nine seasons as the Double-A affiliate for the Miami Marlins before the Red Sox took the team over for the 2003 season. While the team's inaugural season was a struggle, finishing 60-81, it didn't take long for things to turn around. The Sea Dogs made the playoffs each of the next three seasons, including two trips to the Eastern League Championship. The next several seasons saw regression as the team only posted two winning records before the Red Sox took over the franchise. Starting in 2005, the Sea Dogs made four straight playoff appearances, including winning the Eastern League Championship in 2006. Recently, things have been a struggle for Portland as they haven't achieved a winning record or made a playoff run since 2014. Get your Portland Sea Dogs tickets at StubHub.
Who are the Portland Sea Dogs' rivals?The Sea Dogs' top rivals are based on geography and divisional opposition. The New Hampshire Fisher Cats are the closest team geographically to the Sea Dogs as well as being a member of the same division. The rivalry also has another layer when you consider the Fisher Cats are the Double-A affiliate of the Red Sox division rival, Toronto Blue Jays. The Trenton Thunder, the Double-A affiliate for the New York Yankees, are the primary rival for the Sea Dogs. The New York Yankees have been the Red Sox chief rival for well over 100 years, now. The Sea Dogs and the Thunder are also members of the same Eastern League Division.
Where are the Portland Sea Dogs games played?Hadlock Field is the home of the Portland Sea Dogs. The stadium was completely renovated in 1992 when Portland was awarded a Minor League baseball team. At the time, the stadium was only used by a local high school team. To this day, the Sea Dogs still share the stadium with Deering High School. The Red Sox took over the Sea Dogs in 2003 and another renovation was performed on Hadlock Field. Nicknamed the "Maine Monster," there is a replica of Fenway Park's famed "Green Monster" that towers over the left-field wall.
Who is the Portland Sea Dogs' manager?Joe Oliver will be returning as the Sea Dogs' manager for the 2020 season. All of Oliver's managerial experience has been within the Red Sox organization.

During his stint in Salem, Coach Oliver put up a record of 223-193 and guided the team to the 2016 postseason. Before entering the world of coaching, Oliver enjoyed a 12-year Major League career, including a World Series championship with the 1990 Cincinnati Reds. Coach Oliver had a record of 62-77 in his first season at the helm of the Sea Dogs.
