175 Funny Fantasy Baseball Team Names for 2022

Funny Fantasy Baseball Team Names for 2022

It took longer than anyone wanted, especially fans, but the great news is that the MLB is back and so is fantasy baseball. We'll get a full, 162-game season (and expanded playoffs) after all, so with business about to get going in a hurry it's time to shift focus to that all-important task of coming up with a good name for your fantasy baseball team.

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 after the 2020 season, 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.

As is the case every year, 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. And there's always new material to work with, so let's start there.
