As part and parcel of the transition from independent minor-pro to summer collegiate league play, Traverse City Baseball has announced six finalist identities in a "Name-the-Team" contest that will replace the former Beach Bums moniker. According to the club, said finalists were selected based upon the number of submissions received and the unique connection each name has to Traverse City and Northern Michigan. 

 

According to the team website, the finalists - and their meanings - are:
 

Black Pearls – This one has a double meaning as it is a specific type of cherry but also the ship from The Pirates of the Caribbean. Cherry or Pirate? It’s both! Make sure to check out James Jesse Strang before you ahrrrrrrrgue against this one.


Dogmen – This mythical creature is said to be living in Northern Michigan since the days the Odawa tribe lived along the Manistee River. Is this a doggone good name or what?


Dune Bears – A nod to the Sleeping Bear Dunes legend of Misha Mokwa and the spectacular Sleeping Bear Dunes which has brought international acclaim to the Grand Traverse area. Could we put a replica dune in the outfield?


Pit Spitters – A tribute to the tradition of, well, pit spitting. Could add some fun and games to the ballpark experience!


Tree Shakers – Have you ever seen how the wonderful, tasty cherries are harvested? You shake them! Can you feel the ballpark shakin’ yet?


Sasquatch – Are the rumors true? Is there a Bigfoot in Northern Michigan? Well if we select this name, all of those rumors will be put to rest.

   
If you're so inclined, feel free to rank the names at Select the Team Name!

Dune Bears is probably the best, but it'll be something terrible like Pit Spitters.

Why not name it after Traverse City's favorite son (Sun?)

(I've never been to Traverse City, but I imagine Dan Majerle has multiple statues and streets named after him around the town.)
