Take a look at the names your friends and neighbors came up with:

Madison Baseball Stadium Rendering

-Army Ants: Sound off! The Army’s Redstone Arsenal serves as a center for missile and national defense programs and employs more than 40,000 members of our community.

-Comet Jockeys: “Rocket City” was put on the map for its cutting-edge aerospace development. Comet Jockeys is a celebration of our brave astronauts who explore outer space.

-GloWorms: Glow Worms are rare tiny bioluminescent creatures that call the caves at Dismals Canyon in North Alabama home, one of few places in North America.

-Lunartics: We are home to some of the wildest mad scientists facing today’s challenges in space and technology. You’d have to be a “Lunartic” to do that.

-Moon Possums: A scavenger at heart, these local critters are known for hanging around and having a good time with their family just like going to ballgame.

-Puffy Head Bird Legs: No joke! It’s lingo coined by our astronauts for body fluid moving from feet to head in outer space due to the lack of gravity.

-Space Chimps: A tribute to Miss Baker, one of the first animals safely launched into space. She is buried on the grounds at the U.S. Space & Rocket Center.

-Space Sloths: A nod to NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center, the Space Sloths is up there with classic Minor League Baseball names like IronPigs, Flying Squirre ls, Chihuahuas and Jumbo Shrimp.

-ThunderSharks: Mix the powerful thunder of North Alabama’s storms with the ultra-strong, sleek determination of the shark and you end up with the personality of our community: willing to attack any problem. Visiting teams won’t mess with ThunderSharks.

-Trash Pandas: Our community is known for engineering, and no creature in our galaxy is as smart, creative, determined and ingenious a problem solver –dedicated to the challenge at hand –as our local raccoons!
