They won their second Eastern League championship in 2011, their first season wearing their current red, white, and blue team color scheme. It was also their first championship win since they moved to their current stadium.

Will serve almost as well about Vermont,
Excepting that they differ in their mountains.
The Vermont mountains stretch extended straight;
New Hampshire mountains curl up in a coil.”
