In April 1993,  the Wilmington Blue Rocks brought minor league baseball back to Delaware.  Since then, the club has consistently drawn fans to its Frawley Stadium home on the Wilmington Riverfront.  An along the way, there’s been a handful of Carolina League Championships and early glimpses at Major League stars like Johnny Damon, Carlos Beltran, Mike Sweeney, Eric Hosmer, and Salvador Perez.
