The AquaSox have won four division titles and two league championships. Most recently, they won the Northwest League championship in 2010. They previously won the championship in 1985.[1]

One of the team logos, used on road caps and jerseys, is based on the "trident" insignia used by the Mariners in the early 1980s (rotated to look like the letter "E" for Everett, instead of "M" for Mariners). Their mascot is Webbly, a frog.[2] According to long-time team radio broadcaster Pat Dillon, "The frog is a cross between a Pacific tree frog and a Central American red-eyed tree frog—and Brooks Robinson."[3] Previously, the mascot for the Everett Giants was a giant hot dog named Frank.

The current manager is Louis Boyd.
