Clearwater Threshers � The Little Phillies
Florida has plenty of teams in
the Minor League Baseball and one of
the foremost professional teams among them is the
Clearwater Threshers. The team entered
the Western Division in 2004 and has been competing in it since then. The
Home ground of the Threshers is the Bright House Field that is located
in the Clearwater locality of Florida and
seats almost 7,000 people.
The team has managed a High-A affiliation with
the Philadelphia Phillies and has been
so since 1985, which was the first season in the history of the franchise of
the Clearwater Threshers.
result of this affiliation with the Phillies, the Threshers were named the Clearwater Phillies between 1985 and
2003. With the change of stadium from the Jack Russell Memorial Stadium to
the present address, the team renamed
itself as the Clearwater Threshers.
The team has had very little success over the years, in spite of its
affiliation with the Phillies, who are among the most successful teams in baseball history. It has won only one
league title and one division title, both of which came in 2007. The Clearwater Threshers are a team with plenty of
talent but that hasnt done much justice to the franchise.
