History

The Bowling Green baseball team, one of the two South Atlantic League expansion teams for the 2001 season, began as the Wilmington Waves. However, the Waves' stay at Brooks Field in Wilmington, North Carolina lasted for a mere single season. The Waves took on the "South Georgia" moniker when the team was moved to the Paul Eames Sports Complex in Albany, Georgia for the 2002 season. The team retained the "South Georgia Waves" name when it again moved to Golden Park in Columbus, Georgia just before the 2003 campaign. The organization played for one season in Columbus under the Waves nickname until it was changed to the Columbus Catfish in 2004.

Bowling Green and the Lake County Captains, of the South Atlantic League, will shift to the Midwest League for the 2010 season. [Czerwinski, Kevin T. [http://midwest.league.milb.com/news/article.jsp?ymd=20080902&content_id=453433&vkey=news_milb&fext=.jsp "Lake County, Bowling Green shifting to MWL."] Minor League Baseball. 2 September 2008. Retrieved on 20 September 2008.] This shift is planned to alleviate travel expenses of player movement between their respective major league clubs, and those associated with routine travel for away games.
