Jacksonville Suns Change Name to Jacksonville Jumbo Shrimp

The Jacksonville Suns have changed their name to the Jacksonville Jumbo Shrimp.  I know that teams will change their name to drive additional marketing opportunities, but I’m disappointed that the Suns name will be gone after 55 years (starting in 1962 with the AAA Indians affiliate in the International League).  You could argue that it’s a little out of date, but baseball is flush with tradition.
