The Brockton Rox played their first game on May 31, 2002 and in their short history have already won the championship of the Northeast League (Can-Am League). They play their games at Campanelli Stadium in Brockton, Massachusetts. Interesting facts include Bill Murray as a part owner and that their only retired numbers are those of men who didn't play baseball professionally. The retired numbers belong to two famous boxers from the area, undefeated heavyweight champion Rocky Marciano (#49 after the number of fights he won) and middleweight champion "Marvelous" Marvin Haggler (#62, again, the number of fights he won).
