It’s the ‘Kokomo Jackrabbits’

Prospect League LogoAs we predicted, the summer collegiate Prospect League franchise in Kokomo (IN) will be known as the “Kokomo Jackrabbits.”  This might seem a little odd on its face, but there is a historic connection.  The Jackrabbit vehicle was produced by Apperson Brothers Automobile Company in Kokomo in the early 1900s.  Apperson was an American automobile manufacturer that built cars in Kokomo from 1902 to 1926.   View photos of a 1915 Apperson Jackrabbit Cloverleaf Roadster here.  As for the uniforms, we’re seeing vintage San Diego Padres here.
