The New Britain Rock Cats' origins can be traced back to the sixties, when they started as Double-A affiliate team of the Boston Red Sox. For four years, from 1965 to 1969, the team was based in Massachusetts, after which they moved to Rhode Island. In 1973 the team moved to Bristol and was named the Bristol Red Sox. Their move to New Britain came at the start of the 1983 season when they settled in the Beehive Field. The Boston Red Sox wanted the New Britain Red Sox, to move back to Massachusetts since it was closer to their fan base. However the owner of the New Britain team, Joe Buzas, opposed the move. It resulted in the Boston Red Sox ending their affiliation with the team. The New Britain team aligned themselves with the Trenton Thunders in 1994 and in 1995 with the Minnesota Twins.
The Portland Sea Dogs were formed in 1992 when Dan Burke filed an application for a team representing Portland. After the request was processed Portland was included in the final list that could get the franchise. In March 1993, Portland's new team was named the Sea Dogs.
