Fayetteville Generals

The Fayetteville Generals were a minor league baseball team located in Fayetteville, North Carolina.

The last minor league baseball team to play before the Generals were the Fayetteville Highlanders of the Carolina League, they ceased play after the 1956 season.

In 1986, Charles Padgett, a Don Koonce and Jimmy O. Bunce paid $100,000 for the franchise. The team struggled financially, losing money each and every year of its existence.

They were part of the South Atlantic League between 1987 and 1996. They were affiliated with the Detroit Tigers throughout their entire existence. Prior to the 1997 season, the Generals were renamed the Cape Fear Crocs. Sports film buffs will recognize the Generals as one of the teams the Durham Bulls played against in the 1988 movie Bull Durham.
