The team was moved from St. Thomas, Ontario, to Stratford in 2004 after several years of dwindling fan support in St. Thomas. On November 25, 2008, the team announced that the league had approved the sale of the Stratford Nationals to Elliott Kerr, president of the Landmark Sports Group, and the transfer of the franchise to the City of Mississauga.
Prior to its re-location, the team changed its name from the Storm to the Nationals for the 2006 season, in view of the Canadian National Railway's historical importance to Stratford.
The Nationals struggled in their final seasons, missing the playoffs regularly.
For many years, however, Stratford was a premier franchise in the Intercounty League and also one of its founding members in 1919 (along with Galt, Guelph and Kitchener), operating at various times as the Stratford Nationals, the Stratford Kraven Knits and Stratford Hillers. Derrick Franklin hit the first RBI for the nationals as a new team in 2006.
