The Everett AquaSox are a Minor League Baseball team of Northwest League and are the Class A Short Season affiliate of the Seattle Mariners. They are located in Everett, Washington, and play their home games at Funko Field which opened in 1984 and has a seating capacity of 3,682. The team was known as the Everett Giants from 1984 to 1994, but changed its name after ending its affiliation with the San Francisco Giants.

The AquaSox have won four division titles and two league championships. Most recently, they won the Northwest League championship in 2010. They previously won the championship in 1985.[1]

One of the team logos, used on road caps and jerseys, is based on the "trident" insignia used by the Mariners in the early 1980s (rotated to look like the letter "E" for Everett, instead of "M" for Mariners). Their mascot is Webbly, a frog.[2] According to long-time team radio broadcaster Pat Dillon, "The frog is a cross between a Pacific tree frog and a Central American red-eyed tree frog—and Brooks Robinson."[3] Previously, the mascot for the Everett Giants was a giant hot dog named Frank.

The manager in 2014 was Dave Valle, a former catcher with the Seattle Mariners. The current manager is José Moreno.
