The Alexandria Blue Anchors (formerly known as the Alexandria Beetles) were a baseball team that played in the Northwoods League, a NCAA-sanctioned collegiate summer baseball league. The team played at Knute Nelson Memorial Park in Alexandria, Minnesota. The team was renamed in March 2013 in conjunction with the sale of the team to a new local ownership group.
The Alexandria Blue Anchors were founded as the Alexandria Beetles in 2001. In 2013 it was sold to Shane Schmidt, Shaynen Schmidt, Scott Allen, and Adam Barta and renamed the Alexandria Blue Anchors. The new owners failed to make the team financially viable, and it was last in attendance in the Northwoods League for the entire time it was the Blue Anchors. The team folded shortly after the 2015 season.
