Somerset Patriots is a Minor League baseball team that participates in the Atlantic League of Professional Baseball. As a member of the independent league and the location of the team in one of the most densely populated areas in the United States, the Patriots draw a large fan following despite the presence of nearby major MLB teams. The Patriots are among the founding members of the league; however, they had to wait one year to compete favorably until the completion of their own ballpark in 1999. Since then, the Somerset Patriots have won six Championship titles, making them the most successful franchise in the history of ALPB. The Patriots take pride in their name, which refers to the first United States flag unfurled in the nearby Middlebrook Encampment in 1777. A 13-star flag is flown 24 hours a day at the Washington Camp Ground in Bridgewater, the home of the Somerset Patriots.
