Joplin's soon-to-come pro baseball team finally has a name, and we'll find out what it is soon. Matt Labranche of the Suarez Group, which owns the American Association team, tells News Talk KZRG when the name and logo will be revealed.
"It's been a long process, with trademarks and listening to the community and what they wanted, and we'll be able to make that announcement at the Joplin Buffalo Wild Wings at 2pm on Monday, April 21st. One of the most common names submitted was the Miners, which has a lot of tradition and history, but there were a lot of other names, from people wanting something new and fresh. (The Name the Team contest) was a lot closer than we thought it would be."
News Talk KZRG will be there and have a full report for you afterwards. The team is expected to begin play in 2015.
