My high school mascot was the Gobblers, which I always felt was unique, so I'm not inclined to be excited by another organization adopting it. That said, I'd go with Stud Muffins, because why not. 

 

Why not? Because professional athletes have to wear uniforms bearing that name. In minor league baseball, there are names that are fun, clever and different, like Mud Hens, Kernels, and even Blue Wahoos; then there are names that are ridiculous, over-the-top and embarrassing for the players, like Biscuits, Rubber Ducks and yes, Stud Muffins.

The Lynchburg Hillcats have launched an online "Name the Team" contest as part of a rebranding effort that will see the franchise take the field with a new identity in time for the 2017 Carolina League season.

 

The team will be working with San Diego-based Brandiose on the project.

So we can all bank on a swinging mascot logo

The El Paso Chihuahuas are good my to have a one night name change. They are going to use one of the names that was in the running when the Tucson Padres moved to El Paso.  So on June 10 they will be the El Paso Desert Gators. Do you happen to know any other teams change their identity for one night?

Altoona curve were the coasters for a night last year or the year before. The Fresno Grizzlies were the tacos one night last year and this year it's every Tuesday.

The New Hampshire Fisher Cats have held semi-regular events dressed as the New Hampshire Primaries, the name they initially chose for the team but dropped after local protests.  And they still sell a ton of merch with this once-rejected logo on it.

I feel like I should hate this identity and logo, but I actually like it.

I see Brandiose is recycling one of their previous identities.

I both hate and love the gimmicky nature of special minor-league jerseys. Baseball does seem to do it a little better than hockey, but I dread when the NBA-D starts really jumping into the game.

Considering it was a name the team contest, I doubt they had logo mock-ups before settling on Chihuahuas. So, to slap together something simple for one game wasn't going to really have their A-game.
