The Jacksonville Ravens were first formed in 1989 as the Richmond Raiders in the former Southern League's East division. At that time, they were based in Richmond, Virginia. In 1991, the team was moved to Richmond, California, and was renamed to the Richmond Ravens and placed in the West division.
In 1995 and 1996, the Ravens became the first team to win back-to-back Bull Cup Championships. They are tied with the New York Minutemen and the Montreal Metros for the second-most Bull Cup appearances (5), and last appeared in 2011, when they lost to Montreal.
In 2012, the Bull League underwent an expansion and reorganization, and the team was moved to Jacksonville, Florida, and thus rejoined the East division. From 2012 until early 2017, the team was known as the Jacksonville Ravens.
The Ravens have recently found themselves rivaled with the Calgary Inferno, who are in the same division, and who defeated them in the AELCS to advance to the Bull Cup Championship Series every time they have met in an AELCS since 1997. The team, who were at that time were called the Richmond Ravens, have only defeated Calgary once in an AELCS, in 1996. The only other times they have won the AELCS were in years they did not face Calgary in the playoffs:
- 1997, defeated by Calgary in AELCS, 3-0
- 2005, won AELCS against Chicago Pit Bulls, 3-1
- 2007, won AELCS against Nevada Speeders, 3-2, after defeating Chicago in Elimination Round, 3-1
- 2011, won AELCS against Seattle Salts, 3-0, after defeating Nevada in Elimination Round, 3-2
- 2015, defeated by Calgary in AELCS, 3-2, after having won Elimination Round against Denver Highlanders, 3-1
- 2016, defeated by Calgary in AELCS, 3-2, after having won Elimination Round against San Diego Seagulls, 3-2
Hall of Fame Players
The team have had three players inducted into the Hall of Fame as members of the team, all of them as Jacksonville Ravens. The first to be inducted was Hugh Mulholland, who was voted in on his fourth time on the ballot in 2009 with 80.9% of the votes. He played only two seasons with the Ravens (1998 and 1999), and arguably had very few achievements in the Bull League, lasting only six seasons in total. His Ravens years were overall positive, with a combined 14-8 record, 3.30 ERA, 193.2 IP, striking out 140 batters and allowing just 9 home runs. He was a five-time all-star who placed third two times in Sandy Koufax Award voting.
