Clearwater Threshers

From BR Bullpen


Team History[edit]

The Clearwater Threshers, of the Florida State League and briefly in Low-A Southeast, are owned by their parent club. The Philadelphia Phillies farmhands play their home games at BayCare Ballpark in Clearwater, FL.

Founded as the Clearwater Phillies in 1985, they changed nicknames via a contest when their new playpen opened as Bright House Field in 2004. The club occasionally uses a contest runner-up, Beach Dogs, as an alternate brand.

MLB's 2021 Minor League Reorganization lowered the Threshers, and most of the FSL, one level.
