Sports. Honestly. Since 2011

Updated Baseball Fanbase Names

This is a satirical reflection on what each baseball fanbase should be called. It's time to end the era of the "Nation".

Yes, I know it has been a couple moons since we have last seen each other.  I’m not going to go all Adele on us, but it is quite good to be back.  I’m looking forward to a new baseball season, new summer, and the same strong dislike for the defensive shift.  Anyway, why I have gathered us all today is to address something that has become way out of hand.  We must address what we call ourselves as fans.  It’s becoming quite the epidemic.

Because the ol’ cliche”(Team Name) Nation” is beginning to get on my nerves…let’s take this time to reflect on the names we have chosen for ourselves as baseball fans. They suck…like a Dyson. But no fear, I have come up with new baseball fanbase names for all of us.  So sit back and relax and please don’t flood my inbox with hate mail (I’m looking at you, Jerry).

The Blue Jays, Cardinals and Orioles are all members of the Audubon Society
