  1. This story reminds me of a brand-new book that just hit bookstores last month. It’s written by a friend of mine, Tim Hagerty. It’s all about the funny nicknames that Minor League Baseball teams have or had. It’s called “Root for the Home Team.” It’s a lot of fun.

    As a former Rox staffer sort-of in charge of merchandise, I’ll attest that ordering souvenirs is a nightmare when your team colors are brown and “jade” – beyond t-shirts, nobody has those colors in stock on anything, ever.

    Speaking of the Brockton Rox logo, I love the fact that the current owners included boxing gloves in the new moniker. This should have been done by the original owners in the original logo. But, I hate the fact that they changed the colors from the team’s very unique original colors of brown and teal. And, hey, and I’m a die-hard Red Sox Fan!
