In many ways, Minor League Baseball is more fun than Major League Baseball. Sure, the players aren’t as talented. But, the stadium experience is often better and more creative. So are the names of the teams.
According to USA Today, here are the top five best team nicknames in the minor leagues:
5. Rocket City Trash Pandas
4. Hartford Yard Goats
3. Rocky Mountain Vibes
2. Akron RubberDucks
1. Amarillo Sod Poodles
Other notables include the Modesto Nuts, the Jacksonville Jumbo Shrimp, the Pensacola Blue Wahoos, the Montgomery Biscuits and the Lansing Lugnuts.
