Lancaster Barnstormers LogoPRESS RELEASE – The Lancaster Barnstormers will rebrand, but they will do it for just one night. On June 28, Lancaster’s Atlantic League entry will be known as the Hex, also a name paying tribute to the area’s rich Pennsylvania Dutch heritage. In fact, the hex symbol has been on some of the team’s uniforms over the years. Now, it has a chance to step to the forefront.

“Barnstormers” won out and has become synonymous with exciting baseball action and family fun for nearly 8 ½ seasons. However, many other monikers were suggested. The list of runner-up names was whittled down to five, and fans had the opportunity to vote on their favorite alternate name earlier this year.
