The Wilmington Waves were a minor league baseball team in Wilmington, North Carolina. They were a Low-A class team that played in the South Atlantic League, and were a farm team of the Los Angeles Dodgers for the franchise’s only year in Wilmington. They played all of their home games at Brooks Field, on the campus of the University of North Carolina at Wilmington. However, because Brooks Field was not easy to spot on campus, attendance for the Waves' home games was substantially low. Because of this handicap, the Waves were given a limited amount of time to find a new stadium or build a new one. But the deadline was not met and, prior to the 2002 season, the Wilmington Waves were sold and moved to Albany, Georgia, where the franchise became the South Georgia Waves.[1]
