[edit] Team History

The Somerset Patriots began play in the independent Atlantic League in 1998, the league's first season. They have been managed by former major league reliever Sparky Lyle for their entire existence and have captured league titles in 2001, 2003, 2005, and 2008. The Patriots play their home games at TD Bank Ballpark in Bridgewater, New Jersey.

In 2000, infielder Billy Hall stole a record 66 bases in a row, on the way to 104 for the season.
