From White Center Now: Take a swing at renaming a baseball team!

(WCN/WSB photo from June 2019)

If you’ve gone to a Highline Bears baseball game at Steve Cox Memorial Park in White Center, you know it’s a fun time, more up-close-and-personal (and affordable) than a major-league matchup. The Bears have to play mostly on the road this year because of the pandemic but they’re taking the opportunity in the meantime to get ready for a re-branding: They’re looking for a new name, and accepting suggestions through the Fourth of July. The full story’s on our partner site White Center Now.

    The “Rats” en homage to the old “Rat City” nickname for White Center.

    Numerous teams seem to have used Rattus rattus as a name and/or mascot.

    Reading the article in WC Now – I do not see any real reason put forward for the necessity of the name change. Especially since the team is a farm team made up of college players from all over the country – I’d certainly suggest something other than “Rats” — !Then again – why the change at all – esp after 5-6 years!

Sorry, comment time is over.
