Fantasy Baseball Team Names

Fantasy Baseball Team Names

Coming up with a good name for your fantasy team is one of the most critical decisions you can make for the rest of the year. It can strike fear in the hearts of your opponents, or at least make them chuckle every time they see it in the standings. Either way, it'll become your ID badge for the rest of the league -- wear it like a badge of honor!

Of course, not all of us are as creative or witty as everyone else, so on the heels of all of the great suggestions from February's inaugural baseball team name contest, we will host a permanent and growing list of user-submitted baseball names.

All names will be credited to the first FakeTeams.com user that submitted it If you'd like to submit more ideas, pass your suggestions to fantasynames@mattwatson.net and they will be considered and added at the earliest convenience. If you simply add them to the previous post, I may or may not actually notice, so you're best bet is to use the email.

(While I can't claim to be the complete authority on what's funny, interesting and/or tasteful, there has to be some sort of moderation involved, so I reserve the right to use and discard suggestions as I see fit.)

Some of my favorite suggestions are in BOLD.
