The city of Everett is the proud home to one of the best minor league baseball teams in the nation. The Everett AquaSox play for the short-season Class A Northwest League, a derivative of the late Western International League. The team was founded in 1984 and is affiliated with Major League Baseball’s Seattle Mariners.
Originally, the Everett team was known as the Everett Giants and were affiliated with the San Francisco team of the same name. In 1995, the Everett Giants and the Bellingham Mariners switched cities and the Everett team has been known as the AquaSox ever since. The AquaSox logo is inspired by the 1980s look of the Seattle Mariners. The trident is often adorned on AquaSox hats, jerseys, and t-shirts. The AquaSox logo is an easily identifiable frog–playful and fun!
Something notable about the Everett AquaSox: Ken Griffey, Jr. hit his very first professional home run while playing for the AquaSox! The momentous event is honored with a plaque right where the ball landed.
The AquaSox play their home games out of Everett Memorial Stadium each season. The outdoor stadium opened in 1984 and is primarily used for the AquaSox as well as local football teams like the Everett Reign. The stadium can hold over 3,500 baseball fans–come cheer on the AquaSox!
