175 Funny Fantasy Baseball Team Names for 2021

2020 is barely in the rear-view mirror, but its a great source for team names... if you don't like the usual movie and pop culture references!

Funny Fantasy Baseball Team Names 2021

After the rough year that was 2020, spring training and Opening Day for the 2021 MLB season are more than just the annual metaphor for hope springs eternal. The NFL managed to get all its games in and hopefully MLB does also. But it took some pretty crazy shenanigans to do so and I fear what might happen this season in baseball. But you know what I don't fear? Coming up with a good fantasy baseball team name for 2021!

It may not seem like a big deal. But given an opportunity to make others smile, why not do so? Furthermore, if you play on any of the public leagues on the major sites, no team name can be duplicated. So "Deep Freese" suddenly has to become "Deep Freese 1" or some other alternative, which just doesn't have that same ring. Of course with Freese retiring last year, you can probably have it now. But you don't need to use a retired player name. However, our list below includes other names that should probably be retired for one reason or another. But I'll leave that decision up to you.

I mentioned this last year, but it's worth mentioning again. There are some names you shouldn't have. I have a friend for example who to this day thinks less of one of our mutual friends because that mutual friend named his fantasy team "Butterfly Kisses." By choice!

Makes you want to throw up, right? Well, my suspicion is that many actually just use lists of fantasy baseball team names as inspiration. While 2020 was not typically inspiring, it's a great source for team names, so let's start there!
