Branding for the Sioux Falls Sunfish has been unveiled, the latest sign of the summer-collegiate Expedition League club’s impending launch in 2020.
The sunfish, or bluegill, is a popular panfish throughout the Sioux Falls region and all of South Dakota.
“The fan participation in naming the team was incredible and support for the Sunfish name is very strong”, said Steve Wagner, Expedition League President. “The great people of Sioux Falls and the surrounding communities have an outstanding team name and a very cool logo to call their own. This is an exciting time for Sunfish fans as we open a new chapter of baseball and FUN in Sioux Falls. As we discussed at our press conference back in December, this will be an unforgettable summer for Sunfish fans as you enjoy an awesome fan experience at the ballpark with nonstop fun, between inning games, national in-game acts, and great food & beverage options, all in a very fan friendly atmosphere at Karras Park.”
