Asheville Tourists TicketsThe first official baseball team in Asheville was known as the Moonshiners. While there were a few other team names between the 1897 launch and 1915 when the team name was changed to the Tourists, Tourists has stuck for well over 100 years now. Throughout the team's lengthy history, it has been a part of eight different leagues. It's also been affiliated with 10 different Major League teams. The Tourists have been a part of the city of Asheville almost continually since the 1915 season with a few years as exceptions. Before the Rockies became the parent organization of the Tourists in 1993, the team was affiliated with the Houston Astros. The 1993 season saw the Tourists put up a paltry 51–88 record. However, things began to change in 2000 when the longest tenured manager in the team's history, Joe Mikulik, took over. He made the Tourists a frequent playoff team and returned them to championship form in 2012. The Tourists ended last season with a record of 68–72.

Who is the manager for the Asheville Tourists?Robinson Cancel was named the manager for the Asheville Tourists before the 2018 season. Cancel had a lengthy playing career before he got into coaching.

Cancel also made it into Major League games with the New York Mets and the Houston Astros. Robinson Cancel's career spanned 20 seasons before he retired from playing. Before joining the Rockies' organization Cancel served as a coach for the GCL Braves in 2015 and the Danville Braves in 2016.

In what stadium do the Asheville Tourists play?The technical name for the home field of the Asheville Tourists is McCormick Field-Home of the Asheville Tourists. For obvious reasons, most people just refer to it as McCormick Field. While the stadium was completely rebuilt before the start of the 1992 season, the field itself has been the site of baseball in Asheville since 1924. Babe Ruth, Lou Gherig and Jackie Robinson have all played on this field. The fact that the field has been in existence for nearly 100 years now is what the stadium experience is built around. The stadium's concessions serve traditional ballpark fare, and the layout remains true to its early 1900 roots. The 4,000-seat stadium is filled with the history that made baseball in Asheville a century-long tradition.
Do the Asheville Tourists have any rivals?The primary rival for the Asheville tourists is the Greenville Drive. While the Drive are the Single-A affiliate of the Boston Red Sox who rarely play against the Rockies, this Single-A rivalry really hinges on the geographic proximity of the two teams and the fact that they both battle for supremacy in the Southern Division of the South Atlantic League.
Have any players for the Asheville Tourists gone on to play in Major League baseball?Legends within the Rockies organization like first baseman Todd Helton came up through the team's farm system and played in Asheville. Today's Colorado Rockies also have some stars who spent time with the Tourists, including third baseman Nolan Arenado and pitcher Jon Gray. Since the history of this version of the Tourists goes back to 1980, there are also some legendary players who played in Asheville. Since the Tourists used to be affiliated with the Houston Astros, players like Craig Biggio and Luis Gonzalez are listed as Tourists alumni.
