Sugar Land, Home of the Sugar Land You Name Its

For those of you who aren’t aware, Sugar Land will soon be home to a minor league baseball team. After nearly 8000 entries were submitted, owners announced the three finalists for the team name and are asking the public to vote for their choice.

Matt O’Brien, President of the ballclub, was quoted as saying “The contest to name Sugar Land’s team has generated one of the largest turnouts ever seen. A typical name-the-team contest can be expected to generate 3,000 to 4,000 initial entries. Receiving eight thousand entries is unprecedented.”


The three names proposed are:

Sugar Land King Canes

Imperial Sugar was founded in Sugar Land TexasClearly this is a play on the city’s rich history. Once the home of Imperial Sugar, the Sugar Canes would appear to be a natural fit.


Sugar Land Lizard Kings

At first glance, it would appear that someone in the organization is a HUGE Doors fan. This name is The Doorsactually credited to the Texas state reptile, the horned lizard. TCU might not remain the most popular horned frogs in Texas.

Sugar Land Skeeters

Mosquitoes are plentiful Houston and surrounding areasGiven the amount of mosquitoes we deal with in Fort Bend County, this might be the best choice. Residents have often joked that the mosquito should truly be the Texas state bird.
