The Worcester Bravehearts are a summer collegiate baseball team based in Worcester, Massachusetts, USA, that plays in the Futures Collegiate Baseball League (FCBL) of New England starting in 2014. The team's home games are played at Fitton Field in Worcester.

The Bravehearts brought baseball back to Worcester for the first time since the Worcester Tornadoes franchise was disbanded in 2012.

Team history

The team was announced as a partnership with the College of the Holy Cross on September 30, 2013.[1] The new team's name and logo was announced on December 2, 2013, selecting the name "Bravehearts".[2] The "hearts" in the name refer to the heart on Worcester's city seal and nickname as the "Heart of the Commonwealth".

The team began its inaugural season on June 4, 2014, with a 3-1 win in Torrington, Connecticut against the Torrington Titans.[3]

On August 14, 2014, the Bravehearts defeated the Martha's Vineyard Sharks 1-0 at Fitton Field to clinch the FCBL Championship.[4]

In 2015, the Bravehearts started their title defense poorly, but a concluding 8-2 run in their last ten games got them into the playoffs as the sixth seed. They went on to repeat as league champions, defeating the Bristol Blues with a tenth-inning rally in the third game of the best-of-three championship series.[5]
