Fans pick Dock Spiders for new Fond du Lac baseball team


FOND DU LAC, Wis. (WBAY) – Fans have spoken and the name of the new Fond du Lac Northwoods League baseball team is the Dock Spiders.

Hoping opposing teams suffer from arachnophobia, Dock Spiders beat out Barn Owls, Lake Flies, Pipsqueaks, and Shantymen in a fan vote.

“We are excited to open our inaugural season as the Fond du Lac Dock Spiders,” said General Manager Ryan Moede.  “The team logos turned out great and we think Fond du Lac will be proud to be the home of the Dock Spiders.”

The logo was designed by Brandiose in San Diego.
