THE TOP 7 CRAZIEST BASEBALL TEAM NAMES OF ALL TIME

When it comes to names, sports teams can be a bit creative but usually, they stay within a reasonable range. However, sometimes you get the oddball and you think to yourself in disbelief “where in the world did they come up with that monstrosity of a name?” Okay, so maybe that hasn't happened to you yet, but if you read the list of unusual baseball team names below there's a 99.9% chance you'll at least be amused:

1. MONTGOMERY BISCUITS

Everybody loves to eat biscuits, but not all of us would like to be called one. Was it a play on words? Were they saying that they're on a roll like a biscuit? Who knows, but one thing's for sure, this is one of the most unusual baseball team names we've ever seen. 

2. NEW ORLEANS BABY CAKES

We thought “The Biscuits” was a non-manly name until we found the New Orleans Baby Cakes. Is this a baseball team name or an affectionate nickname for your significant other? We can't tell anymore.

3. SAVANNAH SAND GNATS

Okay then. You're a “sand gnat.” Was that name supposed to be an intimidating way to say they have an excellent defense because of the fact that gnats are notorious for swarming around you relentlessly? The world may never know, but I don't think any of us would like to be called a sand gnat in any other context

4. RICHMOND FLYING SQUIRRELS

Flying squirrels are cute and interesting, but they aren't very intimidating. If you're going up against a flying squirrel in just about anything other than flying you should come out victorious. Could you see the other team saying “Oh no, we have to face the flying squirrels tonight?”

5. TOLEDO MUD HENS

What exactly is a mud hen? Is this some sort of slang that I'm not privy to because it sounds like a subspecies of some sort, but who can be sure. Whatever it is, at least it sounds brutish and filthy, so it might be a lot better than Baby Cakes, but only a slight upgrade from Flying Squirrels.

6. FORT WAYNE TINCAPS

Baseball team names usually don't relate to baseball, and that's fine, but they usually at least sort of represent something. Even if it's just an idea. The problem with having a team called TinCaps is that it doesn't really send any kind of message. Even a muddy hen or a sand gnat says something. TinCaps does a great job of leaving us clueless.

7. KANNAPOLIS INTIMIDATORS

Coach: Hey, guys we need an intimidating name.

Guy in the corner: Hey, how about the intimidators!?

Coach: Mind ... blown.

Talk about being straightforward. There was zero room for subtlety here. We don't need an intimidating name because we're already The Intimidators!

IT’S NOT SO BAD COACH

To the people who came up with these horribly despicable excuses for baseball team names, don't beat yourselves up about it. At least nobody has ever heard of your teams. It would be really bad if these names were to become a world-famous joke. Thank goodness nobody has shared these names on the internet.
