Salt Lake Bees: Stinging the Competition

Salt Lake Bees: Stinging the Competition: Salt Lake Bees is a Minor League Baseball team that is based in Salt Lake, Utah. The team was founded in 1994, when the former major league player Joe Buzas had purchased the franchise. The original name of the team had been subjected to a lawsuit file due to copyright infringement. Because the team's mascot is named Buzz, which is the moniker of Georgia Tech's character, the Salt Lake Buzz had changed their name into Salt Lake Stingers in 2001. And in 2006, five years after they had first changed their name, the team had finally announced that the team's name would be Salt Lake Bees. The ballpark where the team played for the first time was the Spring Mobile Ballpark, also known as the Apiary, which seats 15,411 fans. League Played For: The team is a Triple A affiliate of Major League Baseball's Los Angeles Angels and played in the Pacific Coast League (PCL). The team was played as the San Diego Padres from 1936-1968 when the team was transferred to San Diego. From 1985 to 1992, they played for the Salt Lake City Trappers as their rookie-level Pioneer League and won a record-setting 29 straight matches in 1987, which is considered an all-time pro baseball record. Notable Players: Salt Lake Bees has a number of major league players. Some of the most known players are Bernardo Britto who played for the team from 1992-1995, Desmond DeChone Chone Figgins who is a utility player who plays almost all positions, LaTroy Hawkins who is a Major League Baseball relief pitcher, John Derran Lackey who is a baseball pitcher and David Ortiz who is an eight-time All-Star. Accomplishments and Championships: Salt Lake Bees has a total of three conference titles in 1995, 2000 and 2002. They had also won seven division titles in 1995, 1999, 2000, 2002, 2006, 2007 and 2008. The team also snatched the 2002 World Series. The team had also made history in Game 7 when their rookie pitcher was the winning pitcher. Because of this, John Lackey, the rookie pitcher, was the only rookie player to ever win in a World Series tournament. The last time this has happened was almost a century ago, which made the event more remarkable. The Bees also won their PCL pennant in 1959 and won the playoffs in the years 1971 and 1979. This makes them one of the most successful minor league teams in history.
