Team name is officially the West Virginia Black Bears

While not as bad as Energy, Wild Ones or Wonder, the Black Bears name strikes me as a thoroughly "meh" choice. As a result this team's identity is going to really have to rely upon the visual elements to sell the package. Personally, I'd prefer to see them go the route of the American Hockey League's Hershey Bears and adopt a simple, classic, more refined primary mark.

Of all those unique names they wound up with a generic bear name? Disappointing.

Why are they "West Virginia" and not "Morgantown" or "Mon Valley"? I thought MiLB frowned upon two teams having the same locale name (unless they were in far different areas of the nation)...we've already got the West Virginia Power!

Aren't they both affiliated with Pittsburgh too? Kind of odd.

Also, new Tennessee Smokies logos:

Alright, next time I'm in Sevierville, I'm picking up some new Smokies merchandise. That package is beautiful

So the team's name is Smokies, the mascot is a bear, yet said bear is not wearing a park ranger's hat and lecturing me about forest fires. Huh.

Words can't express how much of an upgrade the Smokies set is.

The Smokies look great. The "West Virginia Black Bears" will have a tough act to follow. And I'll just echo others who are disappointed they went with West Virginia instead of Morgantown.

Overall, pretty disappointed with the name. I can't imagine that "Black Bears" would legitimately win the vote. Almost makes you wonder if the voting had any say in the matter at all.

Can't post a pic of it right now as I'm on mobile, but the Fresno Grizzlies have unveiled new uniforms today during the "Meet The Astros" event. The white uniform (the only one I've seen so far) has a completely new "Fresno" script and the "G" claw logo is now on a secondary cap.

Why can't they just put the patch on the other sleeve so it doesn't go above the Wilson logo.

In Quebec City, the Capitales of the CANAM League have the "Hockey Night"...

This year, it was against the AA St.Paul Saints:

Last year, it was against the AA Winnipeg Goldeyes (haven't found an action picture of the Goldeyes...):
