Joplin-based professional baseball team taking name submissions

President of Ventura Sports Group, Wayne Schuster, says they are looking for a team name that is unique, represents Joplin’s history, and that will create a mascot who local children can embrace. Schuster says they’ve already received more than 200 name submissions and will continue to receive them until March 15th.

This is apparently a team in the Southwest League, a new league planning to start play in 2019. Joplin has had pro teams before: the Miners and the Blasters, as well as a college team from Missouri Southern State University.

Anybody have any good ideas?
