MARION (WQRL) – With Wednesday’s announcement that Rent One Park in Marion will become home to a new Prospect League baseball team next season, when will the team’s name be announced?
Dave Kost, Rent One Park’s General Manager, said picking a name for a team has been much harder than team officials thought. Kost said they will be in a position to unveil the team’s name no later than Thanksgiving.
According to Kost, having the right name for the team is important and they’re “not in a hurry to pick one.” He used the Rocket City Trash Pandas of the Double-A Southern League in Madison, Alabama as an example.
Kost said once the team name is decided, then the logo needs developed because it has to be “even cooler, because that’s what people want.”
The staff at Rent One Park is currently asking for the community’s help naming the new team. So far, more than 1,000 ideas have been submitted.
