Eight caps is absolutely ridiculous. 

 

I'm sorry, But, did you say eight? there are seven caps. also, I agreed with you. these are too many caps. The all blue "W" in Red Sox font is the best of them in my opinion.

This....isn't bad actually?  I'm very pleasantly surprised.  Props to ownership for holding the line.

Woo? Why is it not WorSox?

 

Because the city is pronounced "Woostah"

this move holds a special place in my heart as my Dad was raised in Central MA and spent the last 4 years of his life there, and he was very excited they were moving to Worcester, and I absolutely love the logo and gear. 

 

will definitely be buying that hoodie, and can't wait to catch a game.

Well, "The Heart of the Commonwealth" motto's been around since October of 1831. I suspect that was a bit before your 20-year stint in Central Massachusetts. Governor Levi Lincoln of Massachusetts, who would later go on to serve as the City of Worcester's first mayor, coined the phrase. Since then, it's been used to describe both the City of Worcester and Worcester County. It's the reason the image of a heart adorns the Worcester city seal and, by extension, everything from the city flag to city street signs.    

In any event, when it comes to invoking municipal mottos and nicknames, the only folks capable of outdoing local politicos and chamber of commerce officials are sports branding professionals.  

Well, I guess I learn something every day.Gentle drinking buzz and general bias against everything Massachusetts aside, I stand corrected.

It's a better name than the Worcester Wind Fits!

The irony is that while most New Englanders seem to pronounce "Worcester" in a way that has the first syllable's vowel matching the "short 'oo'" found in "good" or "wood," the announcer in the video revealing the WooSox's identity seems to pronounce the vowel in the first syllable of "WooSox" as the "long 'oo'" that is heard in "food" or "mood."

So a video is up on their twitter showing a brick wall and someone shaking a can of spray paint. Worcester Taggers?

OMG I wish!  I posted on their twitter that the wall better have some graffiti on it.

i've always heard "Wuss-ter" from family back there, but i'm sure there's various pronunciations.

Here's a list of all the names they didn't go with: https://www.masslive.com/worcester/2019/11/journey-to-woosox-here-are-all-217-other-names-that-didnt-get-chosen-for-worcester-red-sox-new-name.html

 

As for the name and logo as a life-long Central MA resident, I like it.

 

Woo-ster , Wis-tah, I don't care just never put an H in the city's name.

So, the former Florence Freedom unveiled their top five names in the rename-the-team contest...

OK, now I'm convinced this is just a ruse, and the "winner" is gonna go up against "Freedom," which will win in a landslide.

Lmao. The Y'all's is actually pretty good. If you've ever drove through there you get a chuckle reading the sign.

Florence Y'alls has significant meaning to the area. Across the highway from the ballpark is a water tower and the Florence Mall. The water tower originally read Florence mall but was changed to Florence Y'all after legal concerns. I got a feeling this name will win out. They already have Wally, the water tower as their mascot.

Go-Goettas also works locally after a local meat called goetta (pronounce "getta"), usually made with pork and or beef with oats and spices. Its similar to scrapple (a similar version found on the east coast).

As someone who’s frequently been in Florence I can agree with this.

Never been to a freedom game but the Y’all’s definitely are something I might go see. Would be interesting to see them build an identity around this if it is picked.

Apparently, the Wareham Gatemen of the collegiate summer Cape Cod Baseball League were mulling taking legal action against the Worcester Red Sox over a logo that the latter team is using.

According to the Worcester Business Journal, cooler heads have prevailed and a legal battle has been avoided.

WooSox avoid a court fight over 'W' logo
