My city has had a AAA franchise for about 30 years. It's been called the Zephyrs, the name it had in Colorado before moving here.
The name worked well here, as the team played its first few years at a baseball park close to an old amusement park which featured the Zephyr roller coaster.
Flash forward to now, and they are playing at Zephyr Field, in a complex that also has the Saints training facility.
The powers that be decided that the name of the team needed to be changed, as those under 45 years of age probably wouldn't know about the Zephyr roller coaster.
The name was selected today.
I know my fair city, New Orleans, has a reputation for oddball things, but this, er, takes the cake.
Imagine some big, broad shouldered slugger being introduced as a member of:
THE NEW ORLEANS BABY CAKES!!!
Maybe if we need a rallying song, it could be "Don't Worry Baby"!
