One thing I do miss about living in northern Ohio is all of the access to great baseball. You can see just about all of the Indians farm teams with a short drive. I have enjoyed Captains and Scrappers games (had partial season tickets for both teams). I used to catch the Clippers a couple times each season (they weren't affiliated with the Tribe at that time though) and I used to work walking distance from Canal Park, where the Akron Aeros played.
I always thought that the name "Aeros" was kind of goofy. I never liked it.
Well, the team is NOW the Akron RubberDucks! And yes, I absolutely love this name!
I remember the team asked fans to vote on keeping the Aeros name or going with a new one several years ago. The Rubber Ducks name was an option, but fans voted on keeping the Aeros name.
Still, I think this is a team in desperate need of rebranding, and I think they have done a good job.... so far!
