Pensacola Blue Wahoos

They can't be the Pelicans obviously, but this is a HUGE opportunity.

I submitted Red Snappers (Pensacola is the red snapper capital of the world-and the red snapper's a very marketable fish, valuable for both food and sport. In addition, they'll be the Cincinnati Reds' affiliate, so this ties in well with the parent club while not just swiping its identity-kinda like the Lakeland Flying Tigers).

What names would you send in?

Actualy, MBurny's got a pretty good point...the place is the red snapper capital of the world. Of course, it's also known as "redneck riviera", too, so there's that little tidbit. Hell, I'd say chop the "Red" off, leave it at "Snappers", and go with that. But knowing the denizens of my hometown the way I do, they're probably going to try to force some other Navy- or Blue Angel-themed name out there.

(Pondering whether or not I should jump in on this...)

You could always simplify the name and go with Redfish which is a common name for many of local fish including red snappers and red drums.

I know that the following may be a creative name, takes advantage of the fish and the Naval Air history, but it screams minor league:

Pensacola Flying Fish

I submitted the Blue Angels, because that is the Naval Air Station that the Blue Angels are based in.

See what I mean?

I think Snappers is where their money is. If the team execs are up to it, they could even commission Jason and Casey of Plan B Branding to come up with a nice identity package for them.

OK, let me point out a few things:

They can't be the Red Wings (AAA Rochester) or the Snappers (A Beloit)...so "Red Snappers" is a distinguishing enough mark.

So just because there's a AAA team with the name, they can't have it? I find that hard to believe.

Newly created minor league teams typically like to create an original identity. I know that there are a few duplicate names in MiLB, but those teams existed long before the identity craze.

So what Southern League club is moving to Pensacola? Please tell me it's not the Reds current AA affiliate, the Carolina Mudcats.

And I'm almost positive they'll end up with a name that has something to do with the Navy, but I really hope that doesn't happen.

Pensacola Panhandlers?....But really just going with Reds but using a red snapper for the logo would work nicely.
