Established in 2000, the AppleSox have been providing affordable family entertainment at Paul Thomas Sr. Stadium. Since that first year, the team has created a tradition as timeless as American baseball itself and woven into the colorful history of Wenatchee. Centered around traditional baseball and good, old-fashioned, family fun with wooden signage on the home field and a proud home crowd that boasts some record attendance. The AppleSox guarantee a good time for all and they bring it!
Win or lose, The AppleSox are known to bring a world-class playing style to any game.
And luck has had it that the AppleSox have seen more wins than losses over the years. Winning the league championships in 2003, 2005, 2006, 2009, 2010 and 2012. The years the AppleSox didn’t win the championship…. They came very close, with playoff wins in 2007, 2008 and 2011.
Impressive wins aside, the AppleSox showed early signs of promise by sending some of their first recruits to the major leagues… such as Jason Hammel (2001) who went on to play as a starting pitcher for six different teams before retiring in March. As of May 22, six AppleSox players are active on major-league rosters; Marco Gonzales, Tommy Milone, Pat Valaika, Blaine Hardy and Keston Hiura.
Quite a few AppleSox players have moved on from the AppleSox to play in the pros and with so many players moving up, it only goes to prove that the AppleSox have what it takes to provide their players the opportunity to play on one of the best teams in the Pacific Northwest and give them the leadership skills and training that they need to grow into the best player they can. With such a healthy number of players moving on to pro baseball teams the AppleSox have proven they can produce quality players, quality baseball games, and that they are a team that is watched by professionals and amateurs alike.
The 2019 season will be a special one, with the team celebrating its 20th season. This will be the second season with new owner, Jose Oglesby and he hopes to get the team back into the postseason in search of sixth West Coast League Championship. The team will have exciting promotions like bobbleheads, hats and more! The 20th season “Celebrating Summer One Inning At a Time,” will be a lot like the previous 19, but also very unique.
