Through 1993, the club was the Geneva Cubs, playing at Geneva, New York. For the 1994 season, the club moved to Williamsport, occupying an historic facility that had not been used for professional baseball for the previous two seasons. The club became known as the Williamsport Cubs, a Class AA affiliate of the Chicago Cubs, retaining that name through 1998. In 1999, the team switched affiliations from the Chicago Cubs to the Pittsburgh Pirates, became a Class A short season team, and the team name became "The Crosscutters". At the end of the 2006 season, it was announced that the team would once again be switching affiliations to the Philadelphia Phillies, with the Pittsburgh affiliation switching to the rival State College Spikes.
