Amarillo Baseball Team Name to be Revealed

Will it be the Sod Poodles? We will find out next week.

On Tuesday, November 13th, Amarillo Professional Baseball will announce the team’s new name at a press conference. The press conference will be shown live on the team’s Facebook page, as citizens find out what name is in store for the launch of minor league baseball in Amarillo.

“The wait is officially over,” said Amarillo Professional Baseball President and General Manager Tony Ensor in a statement. “After months of tireless preparation, we are ready to launch and share one of the most exciting brands in baseball with our fans in Amarillo, the Texas Panhandle and around the globe. It’s been a long haul. We have been hard at work and not jerky’ing around. Now that the sod is down on the field, it’s perfect timing to bust into action and scoot into the unveiling of our team brand.”

As a reminder, the finalists for the name are the Sod Poodles, the Long Haulers, the Jerky, the Bronc Busters and the Boot Scooters.

The announcement will take place at 1PM on November 13th.
