All About the Pensacola Blue Wahoos

Part of Pensacola's charm is its bustling downtown, and the Pensacola Blue Wahoos are a fantastic addition. You may wonder where those fireworks come from on Saturday nights or who has that terrific field right on the bay.

The Wahoos have been in Pensacola since 2012, taking over for the former Pensacola Pelicans. The Wahoos are a double-A affiliate of the Miami Marlins, and they are known in Pensacola for a premier athletic facility, fireworks on Saturdays, Fat Tuesdays, and other events. The Wahoos bring a summertime buzz to the city, and sports fans enjoy watching the Miami Marlin's prospects take on other minor league teams. If you're interested in catching a Wahoos game while in Pensacola or are just curious about the city's minor league team, keep reading to learn more.

Premier Athletic Facility  

If you?ve seen Blue Wahoo's stadium, you know it?s more than a baseball field. Located in Community Maritime Park, Wahoos stadium (Admiral Fetterman Field) is often booked out for community events. Some of these events may be summer movie nights, festivals, and fundraisers. This venue is also where the UWF Argos formerly played football games in the fall before getting their own field on campus. 

It's easy to see why this beautiful venue stays busy throughout the year. The stadium sits on the waterfront of Pensacola Bay, in downtown, surrounded by shopping and restaurants. Even for those not interested in sports, the venue still makes a worthwhile experience.
