The Erie SeaWolves are a minor league baseball team based in Erie, Pennsylvania. The team, which plays in the Eastern League, is the Double-A affiliate of the Detroit Tigers Major League Baseball club.

The SeaWolves play in Jerry Uht Park, located in downtown Erie; opened in 1995, it seats 6,000 fans. The team began play at the AA level in 1999 as an affiliate of the Anaheim Angels before switching to the Detroit Tigers in 2001.

The SeaWolves name refers to Erie's location along Lake Erie, as well as the relationship between the original SeaWolves Class-A team and the Pittsburgh Pirates. Historically speaking, the term "sea wolf" was synonymous with "pirate": individuals who commit or practice piracy. The team colors are black and orange.

Prior to the establishment of the Eastern League franchise, they were an A-level affiliate of the Pittsburgh Pirates in the New York - Penn League from 1995 to 1998. Afterwards, the SeaWolves (keeping its past records and history) moved to the Eastern League, while the Mahoning Valley Scrappers were formed in their place. Previous minor league franchises in Erie with various affiliations played under the names Sailors, Orioles and Cardinals.
