The Asheville Blues were a member of the Negro Southern League in the mid to late 1940’s and played their home games at McCormick Field through the mid 1950’s. The Blues were founded by Clarence Moore who purchased the franchise in 1944. For the first two years of its existence, the Blues were Asheville’s only professional baseball team. Moore built the Blues into one of the most talented teams in the region. The Asheville Blues won the Negro Southern League Championship in 1946 and 1947. They nearly pulled off a three-peat, but finished as league runners-up in 1948 despite winning over 80% of their games.
