Central Florida residents have one more chance to play a role in naming the area’s new Minor League Baseball team.
The top six finalists for the “Name the Team” contest were unveiled recently, and the organization is asking fans to vote for their favorite.
In alphabetical order, they are:
Florida Dragonflies: Known for their resilience and fighting spirit, a name among the likes of these prehistoric Florida insects falls in line with other wacky names in Minor League Baseball.
Florida Fire Frogs: Going head-to-head with our “coqui” is not for the faint of heart. These fiery frogs are sure to bring the Florida heat to the opposition and will leave fans hopping for more.
Florida Mud Kickers: In a nod to Osceola’s strong heritage, the Florida Mud Kickers will help preserve two great American traditions -¬ baseball and rodeo. Saddle up, and let’s play ball!
Florida Rodeo Clowns: The Rodeo Clowns commemorate the world famous Silver Spurs Rodeo. So grab your hat and boots and join the team for an experience more fun than a barrel of Rodeo Clowns.
Florida Sorcerers: The Florida Sorcerers speak to the region¹s strong entertainment industry. Fans can expect an enchanted ballpark where the mystical forces of good and evil come to life.
Florida Toucans: The Florida Toucans celebrate the area’s tropical climate that the world “flocks” to (more than 66 million visitors a year in fact!). Imagine steel drum bands, tropical shirts, and an umbrella in your favorite ballpark drink.
Fans are encouraged to vote for their favorite name from the group of finalists at probaseballbackincentralflorida.com. Votes can be cast once per day through 11:59pm (EST) on Aug. 18, with the winning name being unveiled in late August.
The Florida State League team will move into its new home at Osceola County Stadium in Kissimmee sometime in 2017.
