Team History[edit]

Members of the Blue Angels throw out the first pitch at a Blue Wahoos game in 2013

In 2012 the Cincinnati Reds moved their AA affiliate to Pensacola, FL, from Zebulon, NC, where they became the Pensacola Blue Wahoos. The team's name was chosen through a name-a-team contest beating out finalists Aviators, Redbones, Salty Dogs, Loggerheads and Mullets. In 2015 PGA star golfer Bubba Watson, a Pensacola, FL native, purchased a minority share in the team.

On April 22, 2017, Tyler Mahle threw the first perfect game in the Southern League since 1970 [1].
