The Tornadoes were formerly owned by Perfect Game LLC. On October 5, 2009, the majority stake of the franchise was sold to an undisclosed group of Maryland-based investors, which was later revealed to be Todd Breighner of Streamlined Sports, Inc. The directors of the ownership group include Charles Milanz and John Grammer. Jorg Bassiacos is executive vice president and general manager. The Tornadoes were managed by Rich Gedman, a former Major League catcher with the Boston Red Sox, until the end of the 2010 season.
The Worcester Tornadoes are named after the destructive tornado that hit Worcester on June 9, 1953. At a home game on or around the anniversary of the tornado, the team remembers the victims with a moment of silence before the singing of the national anthem.
The Tornadoes, in their first season, won the Can-Am League Championship, sweeping the Quebec Capitales three games to zero. After beating Quebec in the first two games at Stade Municipal, the Tornadoes clinched the championship on their home field on September 15, 2005.
