Name Allentown's Triple-A Team

The highest level of professional baseball next to the Major Leagues will begin play in a new stadium located near the Lehigh Valley International Airport in April of 2008.

Out of the more than 3,500 name entries submitted for the team officials have selected the following:
  • Iron Pigs
  • Crushers
  • Gobblers
  • Keystones
  • Plantastics
  • Phillies
  • Vulcans
  • Woodchucks
Now they want our opinion. The public can now vote for its favorite name here. The vote won't determine the team's name, but will help team officials decide on one for the first affiliated baseball team to play in the Lehigh Valley since the Allentown Red Sox left town after the 1960 season. The name is expected to be announced the week of Nov. 12.
