A METICULOUS METRIC OF BASEBALL TEAM NAMES VOL. 2

This isn’t news, but I thought this poster was cute.

Our baseball team taxonomy is back ... This crackerjack cataloguing covers more than 150 years of baseball history, sorting squads from the bigs, minors, independents, and more into semantic categories like “Derived from City Name” and “Big Cats.” Whether your team is the Mets, the Hokkaido Nippon-Ham Fighters, or, somehow, the Amsterdam-Gloversville-Johnstown Hyphens, this is the definitive guide to the nation’s pastime.
