San Antonio Missions - San Antonio, TX
New Orleans Baby Cakes - New Orleans, LA
Memphis Redbirds - Memphis, TN
Nashville Sounds - Nashville, TN

I'm too lazy right now to see how many there are in AA, A, and Rookie leagues.
Another nitpick - thatís Gwinnett Stripers. Lots of jokes in the Atlanta area about mispronunciations, when they changed their name.
