2. Boise Hawks play in Idaho and first played with that name in 1987. I have actually heard of Boise but I’m not sure why. The teams mascot is Humphrey the Hawk who was born in the Boise foothills.

3. Pawtucket Red Sox is a team that plays in Rhode Island that first played with that name in 1970. Pawtucket – that’s a place I’ve never heard of and it’s a very interesting (odd) name. The team has two mascots, Paws and Sox (very original). Paws is a boy and was born in 1999 and Sox is a girl and was born in 2001 and they are polar bears (because we all know that polar bears are native to Rhode Island).

4. Durham Bulls is a team in North Carolina which first played as the Bulls in 1913 and is a minor league team that I’ve actually heard of thanks to the film Bull Durham (1988) which starred the gorgeous Kevin Costner and the equally gorgeous Timothy Robbins. The team mascot was born in 1992 and is called Wool E Bull.
5. Kannapolis Intimidators play in North Carolina and have played with that name since the year 2000. Personally I prefer their previous name which was Piedmont Boll Weevils which they were given after a public name the team contest – reminds me of the Boaty McBoatface incident earlier this year. Their mascot is Tim E Gator (see what they’ve done there) and he joined the team in 2009.
