A group of panelists will vote on the names and the top three will receive a prize. The folks over at FantasySportsTrophies.com, home of numerous fantasy baseball trophies, are stepping up by giving away a Value Series fantasy baseball trophy. Our friends at Big Awesome Company are pitching in by donating a free t-shirt for the cause. Finally, my dad and brother are giving away a MonsterRaxx t-shirt.
Soon fantasy baseball drafts will be underway. While doing all your due diligence to draft that perfect team is a necessity, let’s not forget that it’s also about fun. What better way to kick things off this year than with a funny fantasy baseball team name. To help you with some ideas, we’re going to run a contest. What’s a contest without prizes?

Fantasy baseball will soon be upon us. While you’re studying up , don’t forget the important task of creating your team name. You want it to be funny and memorable.
If you’ve got a good name, share it here. Whoever has the best name will get a free Evan Longoria Fathead, Jr. All you need to win is a creative name and an e-mail address so I can get your shipping information. You needn’t use any part of LestersLegends in your name. You can reference baseball players, songs, movies, whatever. Just be original and keep it somewhat clean.
Limit three team names per entrant. The contest will be open until April 1st.
To help get the creative juices flowing I’ve offered the following suggestions:
Hanley My Business or Hanley out Beatdowns
Brains & Braun
Hot Dogs with Mauerkraut
Climbing Up on Ellsbury Hill – Peter Gabriel reference
Morales of the Story
For What It’s Werth
Cano You Didn’t
*** UPDATE ***
I used Random.org to select the winner. The winning pick, a sweet Johnny Cash reference, was Train Kept a Rollins.
Thanks to everyone for entering. Good luck with your fantasy teams.
