Minor League baseball is a never-ending producer of hilarious franchise names. Ladies and gentlemen, introducing your Fremont Moo.
Located in Fremont, Nebraska, the Moo are ready for their inaugural season in a soon-to-be 10-team Expedition League.
Brent Wasenius of the Fremont Tribune notes team owner Chad Miller shared the reasoning for the nickname.
“Cattle have an undeniable and profound impact in Nebraska. With cattle outnumbering people in the state, we set out to pay homage to these cattle in a fun and family friendly manner.”
The Expedition League brands itself as an elite summer collegiate wood bat baseball league headquartered in South Dakota.
Last season, the Western Nebraska Pioneers won the championship in the league’s first season. In 2019, Fremont and Wheat City Whiskey Jacks will join as expansion teams.
The Expedition League is making moo-ves.
