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.

This week – The Rocks opened their 25th anniversary season and in this week’s Enlighten Me we offer a look back and ahead.

The Wilmington Blue Rocks’ 2015 season just ended, but the club is already looking ahead to 2016.

Less than a week after losing to Myrtle Beach in the Mills Cup Carolina League Championship series, the Rocks released their 2016 schedule Tuesday.

For the first time since 2008, Wilmington will open its season at home, hosting the Potomac Nationals Thursday April 7th at Frawley Stadium. It will be the start of a seven game season opening homestand. The club’s first road game is April 14th at Potomac.

The Blue Rocks’ season ended Wednesday night.

Myrtle Beach completed a three game sweep of the Rocks in the Mills Cup Carolina League Championship series with a 3-2 Game 3 win at Myrtle Beach.

The Rocks tied the game at 2 on Mike Hill’s RBI single in the top of the ninth, but the Pelicans answered with a run of their own bottom half of the inning on Pin-Chieh Chen’s two-out, bases loaded single to take the game and the title.

The Blue Rocks have their backs against the wall in the Mills Cup Carolina League Championship series.

The Rocks dropped Game 2 of the best of five series at home Monday night, shut-out by Myrtle Beach 2-0 at Frawley Stadium.
