Blue Rocks Baseball

Wilmington, Delaware’s Blue Rocks baseball team is set for opening day this week. This year’s team, which is a minor league affiliate of the World Series Champion Kansas City Royals, features several of the Royals top prospects.  Our featured book explores the history of the Blue Rocks from the team’s formation in 1940 to 1999. Carlos Beltran and Johnny Damon both played for the Blue Rocks before becoming Major Leaguers and World Series participants.

A highlight from the Delaware Historical Society’s book collection appears on this blog every Wednesday morning.
