Amarillo Gold Sox?

The new name for the American Association team in Amarillo (TX) is reportedly going to be the Amarillo Gold Sox.  However, we see a potential problem for the new team, as the “Gold Sox” mark is owned by the City of Marysville (CA) for the summer collegiate Marysville (formerly Yuba-Sutter) Gold Sox.

As we see it, this would require the Amarillo team to use “Amarillo” in conjunction with “Gold Sox” in the servicemark/trademark categories of goods and services registered by Marysville.  They could not use “Gold Sox” alone, for example, on caps and t-shirts.  The domain www.amarillogoldsox.com is also in use by a local youth team.  Read more here.
