The word got out about those goofy finalist names for the Amarillo minor-league baseball team that begins play in the spring of 2019.
And with that word came a whole host of names that I find a lot better than the names put forward.
Plainsmen. Wildcatters. 66ers. Skyliners.
Those are just a few.
I’m wondering if the backlash against the weird names put forth are is going to make the Amarillo baseball brain trust rethink what they’ve come up with.
One can hope.
They’ve invited the public to vote for the favorite among five finalists. They’ll announce the winner later in the year. I’m wondering how “None of the Above” is going to fare.
