The Erie SeaWolves are the Double-A Affiliate for the Detroit Tigers playing in the Eastern League.
They play in Erie, Pennsylvania hosting their home games at UPMC Park. The SeaWolves nickname is a reference to both the close vicinity of Lake Erie and their original affiliation with the Pittsburgh Pirates.
Since 2013, the SeaWolves have had one winning season. In those seasons, Lance Parrish has been at the helm. Parrish is now with the Single-A Whitecaps. The SeaWolves, however, have some familiar names to Detroit Tigers fans, including pitcher Beau Burrows and outfielder Christin Stewart.
Andrew Graham is currently at the helm for the Erie SeaWolves. He was drafted by the Detroit Tigers in the 19th round of the 2003 draft and never made it higher than Single-A ball. After a stint in Australia, he made it back to the Detroit Tigers organization where he made it as high as Double-A Ball. He played his last year of organized ball in 2009 before becoming a coach.
The SeaWolves posted a losing record last year while taking fourth in the Eastern League. 2018 hopefully brings better results as the farm system has improved greatly over the last year.
The final team on our list is usually the last stop for a prospect in the minor leagues before they join the Detroit Tigers at Comerica Park.
