The Schaumburg Mallers? Not so fast

Ballpark DigestThe new Schaumburg team in independent baseball still doesn’t have a name, even though there’s been a winner in a name-the-team contest: the Schaumburg Mallers.

The contest was a a drawing among all entering a name. Besides winner Steve Larek, an additional 65 winners were selected to receive other prizes, such as a pair of tickets for the 2012 season opener.

We can’t imagine going with the Mallers name, to be honest.

The new team will replace the Schaumburg Flyers (independent; Northern League) as the main tenant in Alexian Field. It will begin play next season.
