They HAVE to be either the Mammoths or the Cave Shrimp. Frankly, I don't see any other name working.

If you go through most possible combinations for the team's URL on Register.com, combine that with the knowledge that the new owners also own the New Hampshire Fisher Cats, and you'll see that only two of the finalists had URLs reserved (the others may have been squatted):

www.bowlinggreenhotrods.com

www.bowlinggreenmammoths.com

For what it's worth.

Gotta be the Mammoths, and as a Rays affiliate, I may get a cap.

Everyone that I've talked to that have cared anything about the name voting (mostly older folks) voted for Hot Rods. I've this sinking feeling that Hot Rods will be it. Boy oh boy.

I'll try to post up after the PC some pics of the event.

If it is Hot Rods, you could always use this guy as the foundation of your identity, perhaps even a mascot -

That would only work for a Cleveland franchise.

I'd love to see someone do a concept for this one.

OK...it's almost time for the unveiling.

Judging from GoDaddy.com's reservations, looks like it's either the Mammoths or the Hot Rods.

Any speculation?

I like 'em (and if they were my initials, I'd grab that BG cap), but they don't hold a candle to the old Columbus Catfish identity. :(

As much as I wasn't too excited about the Hot Rods name, the execution is PERFECT!

The tailpipe cap lettering and underscore is SWEET-all I wish is that the script matched the cap lettering.

But overall, I like it. Can't wait for them to play the Snappers & Timber Rattlers in 2010!

I can hear it now...over the PA, roaring sound effects of big @$$ motor revin'...and Darrell Waltrip screamin' "Boogity-Boogity-Boogity-Boogity, let's go racin', boys!!!"

Note to self, do not forget the earplugs next spring when you and the old man wander up i-65 to take in a game

Utter crap.

Minor League Baseball loses one of the best and most unique identities in sports for that garbage.
