Today’as throwback logo of the day comes to us from the South Atlantic League. Our team name and mascot is the result of a “Name the team” contest in 1995. We were called the Phillies in 1995 as tribute to our parent team. From 1996-2000 we were known by our nickname until after the 2000m season when NASCAR Legend Dale Earnhardt purchased a share of the team and the name was changed to the Intimidators in honor of our owner. We also became a member of the Chicago Whitesox organization where we remain today. We were known as the Kannapolis Intimidators. But as part of the Phillies organization we were known by a different city name and our locals are called the lintheads.
Who are we?
We are the Piedmont Boil Weevils
