New Names for 2015: Daytona Tortugas and Oklahoma City Dodgers

Two new team name announcements were made this week:

The Daytona Cubs are now the Daytona Tortugas.  Since they went from a Cubs affiliate to a Reds affiliate, a team name was expected.  The name is Spanish for turtles.  I’m a little surprised that they went with a Spanish name, but I guess it has a better ring to it.

The Oklahoma City RedHawks are now the Oklahoma City Dodgers.  Since the Dodgers now own the team, this isn’t surprising.  I guess the name RedHawks doesn’t scream Dodger blue.
