SWB Yankees to announce new name Nov. 14

The soon-to-be former Scranton / Wilkes-Barre Yankees will announce the team’s new name and unveil their new logo and uniforms at a “Name the Team” party on Wednesday, November 14th. The free event, which will be open to the public, will take place at the Genetti Manor, 1505 Main Street, Dickson City, Pa. from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m.

“We are very anxious to share with the community our new team name and brand,” team President and General Manager Rob Crain said in a team announcement of the event. “We are entering a very exciting time for the franchise and this event will be a significant mile-marker in the club’s history.”

In June, the team asked fans for suggestions for its new name, and allowed them to vote for a winner from six finalists in August.

The contenders for the team’s new name are:

  • Blast
  • Black Diamond Bears
  • Fireflies
  • RailRiders
  • Porcupines
  • Trolley Frogs

I’m a bit partial to RailRiders or Trolley Frogs, but I don’t have a clear favorite. I’m looking forward to seeing the new logo and uniforms, though.
