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.
