A new England baseball team chooses its name and mascot…
From the Laconia (New Hampshire) Citizen:

The name of the city’s new collegiate baseball team is the Laconia Muskrats.
Chosen by owners Noah and Jonathan Crane after getting about 500 suggestions, Noah Crane said Friday they chose Muskrats because it is a water-based animal and there were no other “Muskrats-named” teams in the area.
Crane said the most common suggestion was the Lakers but they shied away from that because the Inter-Lakes High School teams are the Lakers and they wanted a “truly unique name.”
Dear Laconia Muskrats,
In case you need a cartoonist for your logo, well, I’m just sayin’, is all…
