The New Orleans Baby Cakes Is Another Great Minor League Baseball Name

I’m all in on the trend of minor league baseball teams having wacky team names. There are some cynical ass people, but we’re talking about minor league baseball here, this is exactly what it’s supposed to be! Just a bunch of crazy promotions and absurd team names. These team names make headlines, sell merch, and get people talking. Who wants to go see another team named the Lions or Bears? Nobody. Boringgggg. But the Baby Cakes? The IronPigs? The Biscuits? The Tacos? Sign me the fuck up.

This comes on the heals of the Mets minor league club becoming the Rumble Ponies, which low key might be my favorite name in all of sports. What is a Rumble Pony? Doesn’t even matter. A+ rebrand.

Also a big Savannah Banana guy.
