The Norfolk Sharks are an American Bull League baseball team based in Norfolk, Virginia. The team is currently located in the American Eagle League (AEL) East division.

Norfolk, being located on the mid-Atlantic coast, has frequent sightings of sharks off its beaches, thus the inspiration for the team nickname.

History[edit]

The Sharks were formed in 2012, when the Bull League expanded from 16 to 20 teams. In five seasons, they have failed to make a playoff, though they placed 3rd in their division in 2014.
