History


Portland-Padded-120.gifThe Portland Sea Dogs are the AA affiliate of the Boston Red Sox. The Sea Dogs play in the Eastern League out of Hadlock Field in Portland, Maine. Several minor league teams have come through Maine since 1886, including the Maine Guides, a AAA affiliate of the Cleveland Indians. In 1992, Portland was awarded a franchise in the Eastern League due to the two new expansion teams in MLB. The Sea Dogs began play in 1994 as an affiliate of the Florida Marlins. In September 2002, Portland became the Red Sox AA affiliate. Shortly thereafter the team erected the "Maine Monster" in Hadlock Field, mirroring the dimensions of the Green Monster. In 2006, the Sea Dogs captured their first Eastern League championship over the Akron Aeros.
