The Cape Fear Crocs were a minor league baseball team in Fayetteville, North Carolina. They were a low-A class team that played in the South Atlantic League, and were a farm team of the Montreal Expos for the franchise’s entire tenure as the Cape Fear Crocs. They played all of their home games at J. P. Riddle Stadium and were previously known as the Fayetteville Generals. Even though the Crocs were a perennial playoff team during their time in the SAL, poor attendance figures proved too much to bear for the struggling franchise. Prior to the 2001 season, the Crocs were sold, moved to New Jersey, officially became the Lakewood BlueClaws, and dropped their affiliation with the Expos in favor of becoming an affiliate of the Philadelphia Phillies.

Their mascot was the Cape Fear Croc.
