Believe it or not there was a single A baseball team in Battle Creek, MI where they had the locals "name the team". The people hands down picked the nickname the Battle Creek Golden Kazoos. I garbage you not.
After enough embarassment they changed it to the Michigan Battle Cats, then the Battle Creek Yankees and then the Southwest Michigan Devil Rays.
Some great players came through there. Johan Santana, Roy Oswalt, Shea Hillenbrand and numerous other big leaguers. Fun to watch.
