I’m interested in finding relatively rare sports team names.
My interest was piqued by my discovery that there appear to be barely a baker’s dozen teams sharing the name of my beloved Green Bay Packers at present. A cursory search turned up the following:
Armour Packers (High School team name, SD)
Austin Packers (HS, MN)
Colquitt County Packers (HS, GA)
Cudahy Packers (HS, WI)
Fremont Packers (HS, MI)
Largo Packers (HS, FL)
Moultrie Packers (HS, GA)
Omaha South Packers (HS, NE
Santa Maria Valley Packers (collegiate level baseball, CA)
Smithfield Packers (HS, VA)
South St. Paul Packers (HS, MN)
West Fargo Packers (HS, ND)
Westchester Packers (minor league football, NY)
In the past, there were about 2 dozen more, usually minor-league or senior-league baseball teams, but occasionally a basketball team.
Any other major sports franchises with such an uncommon name? I do note the 49ers appear be the name of only 5 sports teams I can locate.
Any franchises with unique names?
