500+ Of The Best Baseball Team Names For Your Baseball, Softball, or Fantasy Teams

500+ Of The Best Baseball Team Names For Your Baseball, Softball, or Fantasy Teams

Before Ordering Your Baseball Team's Uniforms You Need a Team Name!

Examples of products we've created for baseball teams across Canada and the United States


Ordering jerseys for your baseball or softball team is a process. It's not like picking up a few extra balls or bats at the sporting goods store: you need a logo, team colours, sizing, payment from the squad (arguably the most important part), some time for us to print and ship them...but it all starts with a team name. No team name = no uniforms, sorry boys and girls!

Now, we didn't want to baffle you with one of these annoying lists where you scroll through hundreds of names not knowing where to stop. Just like we try to do when you're ordering your jerseys, we've tried to make it easy by breaking these names into sub-categories. There's a time and place for every team name: you wouldn't want your youth ball team named "Just the Foul Tips", but sometimes your beer league team needs to spice it up a bit more than something generic and overused like "Tigers" or "Royals".

To help you navigate the below lists here is what to expect in each category:

  • Pro team names: nicknames used by current or former MLB teams (when you want to be traditional)
  • Minor league team names: nicknames used by A, AA, and AAA teams (when you want to sound like a serious ball club, but also stand out with something more unique)
  • Traditional team names: more names we generated that follow the usual "serious ball club" vibe
  • Classic beer league softball team names: fun names you probably wouldn't use for a more competitive ball club
  • Creative/funny softball team names: similar to classic team names, but a bit more clever (at least we think)
  • Beer-related team names: when you can't resist a good beer reference
  • Women's team names: a few names specifically designed for the ladies!
  • Dirty/NSFW team names: for teams who like to push the envelope with their convenor
  • Pop culture references: there's more than a handful of baseball movies out there
  • Babe Ruth references: when you want to pay yours respects to the GOAT
  • Fantasy baseball team names: usually a reference to an MLB player

Alright you ragtag bunch of misfits! Who doesn't appreciate a good pop culture reference? Most of these are odes to baseball-related movies, but we threw a few others in there for good measure.

Bad News Bears

Isotopes (Simpsons, duh)
Benchwarmers

Shoeless Joe's (not a movie, but a reference to Shoeless Joe Jackson, who now has a restaurant chain named after him)
Rockingham Ruckus (Eastbound and Down)
St. Louis Wolves (from the classic comedy sketch, "Who's on First?")
Lukash Dairy (A League of Their Own)
Staten Island Stevedores (A League of Their Own)
Peekskill Parks (A League of Their Own)
Durham Bulls
The Replacements (Not a baseball movie, but works for any sport, really)

Beers, Burgers, Baseball explanation

Meant to be a reference to "Bears, Beets, Battlestar Galactica" from The Office. I came up with this name, however, because an old teammate told me, "There are 3 B's in life: beers, burgers, and baseball." The man had his priorities figured out.

These jerseys were for a baseball team down in Windsor, Ontario in reference to "Bubbles" from the classic Canadian comedy "Trailer Park Boys".
