Fictional Baseball League (Handrawn Stadiums)

Recommended Posts

Many years after the MLB dissolved due to baseball being "too slow" and games taking too long, a group of 16 teams created the National Baseball Federation. The new United States was divided into 8 districts with two teams in each district. The time period for this is probably around 2300-2350.

Teams and Divisions are as Follows: I have all the cities I want but I am looking for some help with team names and I'm open to all suggestions. Teams not yet posted are also subject to change if someone gives me a better team name idea

Western Conference:

Northwest Division:

Bayside (SF) Jaws (Derived from the sharks that lived in the bay area before expansion into the Pacific Ocean)

Las Vegas Stealth

Denver Squatches (Sasquatches were spotted during the 2195 rapid expansion of Denver)

Northland (Montana) Bison

Southwest Division:

Kansas City Wranglers (Nod to the old cattle yards in the city)

Dallas Steers (Name is a representation of all things once known as Texan before the redrawing of territories in 2157)

Phoenix Cacti

St. Louis RiverCats (As in catfish)

Eastern Conference

North Division:

Chicago (Still need a team name)

Detroit Smoke (From the dark period of Detroit during the 2000's)

Boston Rebels (From the famous rebels of Boston during the Tea Party and the founders for new territorial boundaries)

New York Liberty (From the old statue of Liberty)

South Division

New Orleans Swamp Monsters (The rougarou (werewolf-like creature) was spotted once by authorities in 2147 but never seen again)

Miami Palms

Nashville Blues (As in country music blues, similar to St. Louis Blues)

Cincinnati Red Stockings (Since this is far in the future, the Red Stockings would be ancient)

I can't quite figure out how to post pictures, so just follow this link and it will take you to a document where I will be updating it with teams. I am almost done with the first team now!

This is a good start, try something with Chicago about tall buildings, wind, or the great lakes. Firt couple things that come to my mind are Skyhawks or Lakers. With New Orleans, you gotta find something shorter. Swamp monsters is just not a professional sports league name

I agree with sleuthpanther. Swamp Monsters is just too long for a professional sports team. And IMO the jerseys would probably be cluttered and hard to read

I thought you said that they redrew the territories/states. Good start so far. For Chicago why not something like the gusts or something representative of wind and/or storms? Will be watching this.

P.S. Nice to see someone else from the KC area.

EDIT: I meant to say gales for Chicago since flyersfan's fictional wiffleball league has the Chicago Gust as a team. Literally, I was like "Don't write gusts, don't write gusts 'cause of that other thread" then I see my post and I'm like :puke:

Yeah I am currently on vacation until Monday/Tuesday but I'm going to be brainstorming ideas and I will present them to everyone in full and once I get everyones opinions on team names I'll start sketching up stadiums.

I don't know if I agree with that. If I did do jerseys (I might eventually) they would have an interlocking SM or just "Monsters" on them. I wanted to base it off the rougarou but rougarous is a terrible team name. If you have any ideas of what else I could name them while still relating to the rougarous then go ahead.

Quakes, Martians, Bighorns, Spuds, Drillers, Wranglers, Bushwhackers, and Rattlers are the names that I would pick. Also you should realign the divisions (inside the western conference) as:

WEST EAST

Boise Kansas City

Los Angeles St.Louis

Phoenix Denver

Las Vegas Dallas

Ok thanks for the suggestions. However, I am trying to keep the regions together in the divisions, and your suggestion for the divisions doesn't do that unfortunately.

I really like your idea for this league. Personally I like: Stars, Gamblers, Bighorns, Falcons, Drillers, Monarchs, Eagles, Rattlers but it's whatever you like most

Thanks man! I just got back from vacation early this morning so I plan to have 2-3 stadiums up today. Once I finish the Western Conference I will give proposed names for eastern conference.

Team names I have chosen:

Los Angeles Quakes

Las Vegas RedRocks

Denver Bighorns

Boise Spuds

Phoenix Rattlers

Kansas City Wranglers

St. Louis Bushwhackers

Dallas Drillers

I should have the Drillers, Rattlers, and one other stadium up by tonight. The stadiums will be small/medium sized as the NBF didn't want to invest billions of dollars into building stadiums before they knew if the league would be successful. Over time, the NBF will expand, add, and move stadiums and teams based on the performance and success of the teams and the league as a whole.
