New for 2019: High Point Rockers

High Point Rockers

We have a name for the independent Atlantic League team playing out of the new $36.1-million BB&T Point ballpark next season: the High Point Rockers, celebrating the furniture-making traditions in the North Carolina city.

Rockers won in a fan vote, beating out Dragon Claws and Splinters. Yes, all three were related to furniture, as the greater High Point-Thomasville area has long been central to the U.S. furniture industry.

The High Point team was officially approved by Atlantic League members in March. The Atlantic League is playing with seven teams and a travel team in 2018; barring any additional changes, the new High Point team will replace the Road Warriors in 2019. The new High Point club will be the league’s first in the state of North Carolina.
