Baseball Team Names

From Rumble Ponies to AquaSox, weird baseball team names are baked into the great big casserole that is baseball.

Football teams have to be tough and intimidating, but baseball isn’t like that. There are funny baseball team names, team names based on local landmarks, and names based on silly baseball puns.

The Amarillo Sod Poodles. If that’s the name of an actual professional team, imagine what name you and your goon squad could land!

Baseball Team Name Ideas for 2022

Given baseball’s looong history, you’d think all the good baseball team names would be claimed. But you’d be wrong.

Comebackers is a suitable team name if you tend to hit balls right up the middle. Or maybe, it’s because your baseball career is just about to come back – any day now.

Low-Key All-Stars

Whammy!

No Cap Baseball

This baseball team name is just a saying. You can still wear caps if you want.

The Wheelhouse

True Outcomes

I also like The Nine True Outcomes for a baseball team name. But I am both a stats and a words nerd.

Still Slaps Hitters

Wormburners

If you’re looking for soccer team names, this name would undoubtedly fit the bill.

Majorly Based Ball

TBH, I don’t fully understand how to use based correctly. TBH, I’m just now getting a handle on TBH.

Big Flex

Or, if that’s a little too aggro, Weird Flex works as a baseball name, too.

Maybe you could use this idea for your amateur wrestling name?

Oppos Attract

Slayers

Opponents. Dragons. Outfits. Whatever.

Ground Balls

Ouch!

Ground Balls would also work for a lacrosse team name, but it does mean something different.

RBI’d for Her Pleasure

Baseball is a wonderful game for teaching kids teamwork, perseverance, and the true value of nefarious skullduggery.
