Leicester Blue Sox and Long Eaton Storm have announced a new partnership that is aimed to get more players active in the adult British Baseball Federation (BBF) league next season.

Based on last season’s participation, each club has about enough players to field one and half teams - but not enough to register a second team in their own right.

Having discussed these common challenges for several months, the clubs have agreed to join forces in 2017 and field a combined second team, which we expect to enter in to the BBF Single-A Division.

The new team as yet doesn’t have a name and is this is where we need YOUR help!

We will be running a competition during December to help decide a team name and logo for the new team.

Mike Hayward of Long Eaton has already put together some ideas to help stimulate interest as well as further suggestions.

Competition

The new team will be named ‘East Midlands (insert moniker’), it’s the moniker that we need you help in deciding!

To join in the fun of naming the team, please complete and submit the team name entry link. You can either think of name that would suit one of the existing logos, or even a completely new name that Mike will be happy to design a logo for.

This part of the competition will run until Friday 16 December 2016. After this date, we will draw up a short list of the best suggestions for the members of Blue Sox and Storm to vote on. Each team name in this short list will be credited to the individual who first suggested it (we assume Mike will want to take credit for 'Beards'!!!)

We will then run the second stage of the contest until the end of December and then announce the winning team name, logo and individual credit in early January. The person credited with the original suggestion will win a supply of brand new official BBF Baden baseballs!

So get your thinking / baseball caps on (!) There is no limit to amount of suggestions an individual can make, so you’ll need to be quick to ensure you are first to gain the individual credit in the second stage of the contest!
