We told you at the beginning of the season that new COO Jim Pfander was determined to make Akron the best AA franchise possible, and that everything was being evaluated and improved where necessary. Apparently that includes the name Aeros as well.
The club is giving away some nice prizes to get your input-
Grand prize winner will receive a pair of season tickets for life, team jacket and baseball cap and ceremonial first pitch for 2012 Home Opener. Four runner-up winners will receive team jacket and baseball cap.
You can suggest a name, or simply vote to keep the Aeros current moniker. I don’t see anything wrong with the Aeros name as is, but perhaps there is something more appropriate? What would you suggest? The contest ends today, so go to the site and enter for your chance to win.
And please, nobody’s going to name the team after anything that has to do with LeBron.
