The Norfolk Tides of the International League, and briefly in Triple-A East, sail with a seaport-appropriate nickname that dates to 1962. The Baltimore Orioles farmhands play their home games at Harbor Park in Norfolk, VA.
"Tides" was preceded by the equally seafaring "Tars" that was first used sometime between 1885 and 1906 and last used by the team that folded in 1955. Professional baseball returned in the form of a South Atlantic League franchise in 1961, originating the Tides nickname.
The Tides play Copa de la Diversión Hispanic engagement campaign games as Pajaritos de Norfolk (Portsmouth Birdies).
