Twins Low A Team in St. Paul (Names?)
Posted 31 August 2012 - 02:17 PM
What if they do indeed move to St. Paul (proposed Lower Town site) in a few years and share a stadium with the "Saints" - what in the world will be the team's name?
What are your choices? I'll start with this -
Pig's Eye "Bootleggers" of Saint Paul
Let's have at it!!!

St. Paul Bootleggers
I'd be on board with that. I just wanted to throw Pierre "Pigs Eye" Parrant some respect, as he was the bootlegger.

if not, then i'd like it to be the st. paul vulcans. it'd be a nod to the city's heritage while at the same time incorporating star trek into the fold. think of the marketing opportunities! vulcan caps could come with pointy ears, the vulcan salute could be given after home runs, etc.

Saint Paul Apostles-The name of the 19th century ball club that played nine games.
This would also be good one up manship to the name Saints.
Or they could call themselves the St Paul Jews, for a contrast angle

The St. Paul Solo's.
Only if it is reference to "Han Solo".

I like Bootleggers and Apostles
other ideas with an "S" sound:
Celtics (large Irish Population in Saint Paul)
Scholars (a nod to all the local colleges)
Summits (after the street, not the beer)
or completely different
Maybe call them the "Pig's Eye Pirates" ? skip the Saint Paul part altogether . . .
