FOND DU LAC, Wis. (WBAY) – The new Fond du Lac Northwoods League franchise needs help naming the team.
Five finalists were chosen from the 800 names submitted by fans. The organization is asking fans to chose the winner.
The finalists are:
- Barn Owls: The Barn Owls pays tribute to our farming heritage and these majestic birds. Hoot, hoot, hoot for the home team!
- Dock Spiders: These enterprising critters call Lake Winnebago home and are known to be the gentle giants of the spider world. With their eight legs they sure can swing a lot of bats.
- Lake Flies: They’re ubiquitous, tenacious and travel in packs like our players. Kids will love “catching a fly” while rooting for the Lake Flies next May!
- Pipsqueaks: A nod to our famous fresh squeaking curds, Pipsqueaks celebrates our young up-and-coming players and the kind of fun minor league baseball is known for!
- Shantymen: A celebration of the world’s largest population of Lake Sturgeon, the Shantymen honors those who brave Lake Winnebago to catch this elusive beast.
Click here to vote for your favorite. Voting is open until Oct. 31.
The team name will be announced in November.
The season starts next May.
