The Savannah Buccaneers are a Heifer League (AA-level) baseball team based in Savannah, Georgia. The team is currently located in the Barn League East division. They are an affiliate of the Anchorage Aces Bull League baseball team.

Since forming in 2013, they have accumulated a win-loss record of 184-180 (.505). They were in the playoffs in their first year, when they finished 1st in their division with a 42-34 record, but were swept in the Barn League Championship series by the Cedar Defenders, 3-0. Cedar went on to win the AA-level Heifer Cup championship trophy.[1] The Bucs won their second division pennant in 2017, making the playoffs for their second time.

The team won the Hiefer Cup, the championship trophy for the league of the same name, in 2017.

History

The team first formed in 2013 as the Atlanta Orange Sox, as the AA-level affiliate of the San Diego Seagulls. At the end of the 2016 season the parent club moved from San Diego to Anchorage and was renamed to the Aces. This was followed by a relocation for several of their farm teams, including the Orange Sox, which moved to Savannah, Georgia, and was renamed to the present Buccaneers in early 2017.[2]
