Owls fans- have you ever wanted the opportunity to name a new baseball team? If so, this may be your chance!

Don’t worry, your Forest City Owls aren’t going anywhere. The Owls are creating a second summer league team which will mean more baseball games for everyone! After 2020, who doesn’t need more baseball? The new team will play approximately 10-12 home games, so with the Owls games too, it will be the most home games in Forest City’s history.

Here are some of the rules: your Name the New Team Contest entry should be creative, clever and memorable; it must be family-friendly; and it may include an explanation how your suggested name relates to baseball, Forest City, Rutherford County and/or North Carolina. You may enter up to three different names. There are other important rules which can be found on the Owls Facebook page: Forest City Owls and see the Owls comments below. After you read the rules, email your entries to [email protected], with your full name, address, and phone number, beginning January 11, 2021. Entries must be submitted by January 29, 2021. The winner will: receive 4 tickets to the first game of the newly named team; throw out a ceremonial first pitch at that same game; and receive two tickets to the other 2021 home games of the newly named team. Get those creative juices flowing and submit your entries beginning January 11, 2021!
