Didn’t some other team (I’m thinking Vermont, but they just did the maple kings) just do a celery uniform?

All we know down here in North Carolina is that the colors are black/gray/red (Fayetteville Hurricanes??) and the names could be any of these:
 

Fatbacks. Fly Traps. Jumpers. Wood Dogs.  Woodpeckers.

...it's going to be Fatbacks, isn't it?

When Fayetteville announced the BlackGray, and Red palette back in May, it struck me that those colors would lend themselves to the name Fayetteville Woodpeckers. Many of the woodpecker species found in North Carolina - including the Downy woodpecker, Hairy woodpecker, Ivory-billed woodpecker, Northern flicker woodpecker, Pileated woodpecker, Red-bellied woodpecker, Red-headed woodpecker, and the Yellow-bellied sapsucker - feature those colors in their plumage. 

 

Well, we'll find out in just over a month.

It would seem a little odd to have the Woodpeckers in the same league as the (Down East) Wood Ducks.

Nothing says “ships of the desert” like the... Great Lakes State?

Mobile's moving?  That blows.  And whatever replaces that great BayBears identity is more than likely going to be inferior to some degree, seeing as they're not going with Stars.

Yeah,ive always wondered how much the additions of Pensacola and Biloxi might have affected this...

Galileo just asked why, he said why are you renaming the team.

Right now, I just feel sorry for poor Mobile...I wonder if either the Sally League or possibly the Coastal Plain League would open their doors to them...

With the exception of their first five or six years of operation, the BayBears have always had a tough time drawing crowds to Hank Aaron Stadium. The team has only finished in the top half of Southern League attendance four or five times, while finishing in the bottom third on 11 occasions (including this season's projected - and, obviously, to-be-expected - dead last). Including this year, the team has averaged fewer than 2,500 fans a game for seven straight seasons, Truth be told, most games Hank Aaron Stadium has sat half empty for much of the team's existence.

Seven Finalists Unveiled for New Green Bay Moniker

 

Quote

After receiving over 900 submissions from Green Bay baseball fans during the initial phase, the team is now inviting fans help to zone in on the name of their hometown team by voting on the seven current finalists:

  • Green Bay Booyah – Featured as the main dish in a plethora of fundraisers in the area, Booyah has a unique tie to the area. Did you know that the word Booyah was most likely the result of a Green Bay Press Gazettle reporter mistakenly interpreting area resident Lester Rentmeester’s French pronunciation of “Boullion” into Booyah? If selected as the name of the team, the joyful moniker would be accompanied by a fierce rooster icon in a logo. Music and other pop-culture references to Booyah would also be fun elements in this brand.
  • Green Bay Cheese Curds – How many times have you insisted that your out of state guests try cheese curds before they leave Wisconsin? This simple Wisconsin staple has truly become an icon of the entire state. If Cheese Curds is selected, envision a tough cow as the character in the logo joined by the words. Obviously, there would be a focus on serving the finest fresh and fried cheese curds available in Ashwaubenon and beyond if this name squeaks out a win to become the name of the team!
  • Green Bay Old Fashioneds – Another iconic part of Wisconsin life is the Brandy Old Fashioned. Everyone has their favorite recipe, or their favorite joint that makes the best one in town. No one uses bourbon or whiskey, for sure. Although this name considers that connection, the brand would be more reflective of an old fashioned way of doing things. Picture vintage uniforms, a hand operated wooden cider press serving fresh cider at games, hand painted signage throughout the ballpark, and a logo reminiscent of a simpler time.
  • Green Bay Supper Clubbers – The Wisconsin supper club is reflective of the priorities of life in Wisconsin. Time with family and friends, great food, an opportunity to escape to a unique and out of the way destination and even the search for the next great supper club you haven’t yet visited are things every Wisconsinite appreciates. Supper Clubbers is a fun take on this great tradition that opens up rich opportunities from a branding perspective including offering a salad bar at games, kiddie cocktails, and an outstanding Friday Night Fish Fry.
  • Green Bay Tailgaters – A tribute to the best tailgating scene in all of sports that occurs prior to every Green Bay Packers home game just ½ mile from Capital Credit Union Park. This tradition continues to build and Wisconsinites continue to out-do each other from both a culinary and tailgating vehicle perspective.
  • Green Bay Under Dogs – Far and away the smallest community to host an NFL team, is Green Bay an under dog? Well, we’d like to hear from you on that topic. If selected, the brand would have a vintage feel that would celebrate everyone’s favorite team when you are watching a game that your typical favorite isn’t participating in, the underdog.
  • Green Bay Wurst – A tribute to another iconic Wisconsin culinary creation, the bratwurst! Nothing says summer has arrived in Wisconsin much more than the first time you fire up the grill and fry up some great bratwurst. Eskimos have over 50 different words for snow, well, in Wisconsin we have hundreds of different styles of specialty bratwurst. This fun branding would open up a lot of doors for the team in the future and the media, alike.

Fans may vote for their favorite finalist at greenbaybullfrogs.com. Votes will be accepted from the list of current finalists through Monday, August 27. The team will award a special prize to all voters who select the name which becomes the new identity of the team.

 

 

"Supper Clubbers" and "Old Fashioneds" are about as Wisconsin as you can get.  But they're surprisingly adult for minor-league ball, which leans toward the kiddie.

I swear, every one of these lists I've seen lately makes me wonder if these teams have nothing but contempt for their players and fans.

I'd take Bullfrogs over every single one of those names.

Mobile seems a bit of a stretch for those leagues....
