HIGH POINT, N.C. -- Thanks to votes from community members, the nine proposed names for the future High Point baseball team have been narrowed down to six, plus an added wild card name.
During the first elimination week, over 2,500 voters from across North Carolina weighed in on their favorite names for the High Point baseball team, which is slated to join the Atlantic League for the 2019 season and play at BB&T Point.
The names Hush Puppies, Iron Dragons and Iron Eagles were eliminated from consideration. Based on fan feedback looking to include both the history of furniture and textiles, RockerSox was added as a Wild Card.
The remaining six names plus the wild card in alphabetical order are as follows:
- Dragon Claws
Fan voting begins on June 15 for the remaining six names plus the wild card at highpointbaseball.com.
