Rochester Red Wings
1 Morrie Silver Way | 585-454-1001
The oldest continuously-run minor-league team in professional sports, the Red Wings have been a major source of hometown pride since 1899 and are the Triple-A affiliate of Major League Baseball’s Washington Nationals. Longtime General Manager Dan Mason is a master at ginning up crowd-pleasing promotional gimmicks that keep audiences coming back — from his “50-Degree Opening Day Guarantees” to “Milo the Bat Dog” paw-print autographed posters — and the antics of the anthropomorphic Spikes and Mittsy mascots keep fans entertained. The team’s Twitter account, @RocRedWings, is among the best anywhere for its mix of humor and snark.
Finalists: Roc City Roller Derby | Rochester Americans | Rochester New York FC
