A team from Fond du Lac, Wisc., will field a team in the Northwoods League, a collegiate summer baseball league, beginning next year. Today they announced the team name. It’s that.
“Dock Spiders” beat out 800 or so other suggested names, including finalists Barn Owls, Lake Flies, Pipsqueaks, and Shantymen. And if the logo looks familiar, it was designed by Brandiose, the sports marketing firm responsible for the minor-league snarl.
