The Vermont Lake Monsters
Burlington, VT is close to one of America’s gorgeous lakes, Champlain. The name references Champ, the legendary Lake Champlain monster which had been the team's mascot since 1994. The Lake Monsters are a short season A-ball affiliate of the Oakland Athletics. Current Major Leaguers Geoff Blum, Jason Bay and Orlando Cabrera once played for the Lake Monsters whose games are played on the University of Vermont campus.
