webdav Posted April 9, 2003 Share Posted April 9, 2003 We've started a league associated with the Men's Adult Baseball League here in my hometown. We'll have four teams. One is definitely going to be the Brewers. I am managing/coaching/playing another team.When it came to choosing a name, I wanted something new, but classic sounding, something that reflected my interests and the area, and something that was easy to say. If a place name is required, we could use "Bozeman", "Gallatin" or "Montana."As far as the area is concerned, Lewis & Clark spent quite a bit of time here, as well as the railroads. Skiing and flyfishing are big hobbies here as well.The names I considered are as follows:* Explorers - ties into L&C, but I didn't think it was very easy to say, with the two sylables ending in "r" sounds at the end* Pioneers - just didn't thrill me, especially combined with the place names* Black Diamonds - I like the "diamond" - reference to baseball, and the black diamond being the symbol for a difficult ski run, but it seemed contrived* Iron Horses - reference to the railroad history of the valley and my family as well. Also has a baseball history with Lou Gehrig. We also have a Harley dealership in town. Dismissed for being contrived* Steel Steeds or SteelSteeds or Steelsteeds - same as above, only even more contrived. * Mountaineers - just plain too long to fit on a jersey!* Homesteaders - kind of a reference to the Homestead Greys Negro League team, seemed too longI finally had something come to me as I was reading about the ski trip I'm taking this weekend: Moguls. It has three meanings - bumps on a ski hill, barons or magnates of industry and it was a type of locomotive. So that's the name:Montana MogulsThe problem now is that I have to come up with a logo for the team. I'm thinking about just doing script on the uniforms "Moguls" and a script "M" similar to that of the new Milwaukee Brewers hats. I like that hat, very classic looking.I also thought about how some teams have mascots even though they don't have names that are obvious for a mascot - like the A's using an elephant. I thought I could use a snowman made of baseballs, but that idea was a fleeting one!If anyone wants to take a hack at a logo for the hat, I'd love to see them. Any ideas could help. I'll post mine when I get one done.Thanks for reading all this!Dave - the new guy Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
