Pensacola, Florida, is set to host a brand new Double-A Affiliate of The Cincinnati Reds in 2012. Pensacola Professional Baseball (who are making a huge mistake) has selected the top six finalists for the club’s Name the Team contest, and fans are voting for their favorite through May 14. Some of the choices are what you’d expect from the Minor Leagues, like the Redbones (symbolizing the “dog days of summer” and “doggone fun,” respectively), the Aviators, the Salty Dogs and the Loggerheads.
Unfortunately one of the choices is especially cute, and we may end up with another Butthead Memorial Auditorium on our hands.
- Mullets are one of Pensacola’s most popular fish, as well as a fun, wacky team name Minor League Baseball is known for. Mullets stand for the fun, off-the-wall entertainment fans can expect at Maritime Park next season and beyond.
