The BlueSox were formed by former Pennsylvania State Representative Leo Trich, Jr. in Washington, Pennsylvania in 2006 as part of the Tri-State Collegiate Baseball League. After renovations were completed at Kelly Automotive Park in 2008, Trich decided to move the Washington BlueSox to Butler as a founding member of the Prospect League. The team officially became part of the league in December 2008. The team went 28(W)-26(L) during their 2009 inaugural season in Butler. In 2011 Leo Trich sold his ownership of the team to a group of five local business partners to run the team. MLB pitcher, and Butler native Matt Clement is one of the owners. In late 2011, an agreement was reached to keep the BlueSox in Butler through the 2013 season.
For the 2012 season, four additional games were added to the 56 game schedule. The BlueSox went on to have a winning season for the first time since their inaugural year in the Prospect League, three years before. However, they were a few games short of making the playoffs.
The 2013 season consisted of thirty home games. The BlueSox hosted the Prospect League All-Star Game on July 17, 2013. The team was eliminated from the playoffs during the last game of the regular season, falling to the Slippery Rock Sliders 4-0.
The BlueSox made their first playoff appearance in 2014 by going 25-7 in the second half of the season which included an 11-game win streak. They were eliminated by the Chillicothe Paints in the East Division Playoff 2-0 in the best of three series. BlueSox pitcher Adam Bleday (University of Virginia) was named Prospect League LHP of the year.
