Mid-Atlantic minor league

How about giving us some detail there, Cap boy?

Agreed. What are you asking us to do in response?

BTW, as someone who works in Towson, I think I speak for the whole community in saying we're flattered to be in your top six. :P

As the Towson representative (?), I'll try to give that a go. Right off the bat, Generals (Towson HS) and Tigers (Towson Univ.) are taken.

Highlanders -- The center of town is at the top of a hill.

Hilltoppers -- See Highlanders.

Ironmen -- Ridgely family (owners of Hampton Mansion -- now a national historic site, once the largest house in the US) owned ironworks that supplied US troops during revolutionary war. Other ironworks were also found throughout the area.

Stags -- From Ridgely family crest (caveat -- it should be noted that the members of the Ridgely family were prominent slaveholders, so perhaps honoring them isn't such a great idea).

Thoroughbreds -- Racing and breeding industry in the immediately surrounding area.

Lancers -- Joisting is the state sport of Maryland.

That covers most of the area-specific I can think of. If I think of any generic ones that sound decent, I'll post again.

Some other Towson ideas may come out of honoring Johnny Unitas, since the team would presumably play at Johnny Unitas Stadium at Towson Univ. The only two I could think of were the Golden Arms and the 19s, but they both sound pretty awkward.

In the interest of single-handedly keeping this thread alive, here are some Harrisburg ideas (with the thought of staying somewhat location-specific instead of generic). I'm not too pumped up about any of them, but here they are:


Patriots (Main newspaper in town is the Patriot-News. I don't know if that is a plus or a minus.)


Islanders (Presumably, the team would play on City Island. However, there is/was a minor league soccer team called the City Islanders.)

That is all I can think of for now. I know there are better options, but it is late on a Friday afternoon.
