175 Funny Fantasy Baseball Team Names for 2019

From movie and pop culture references to the classics, this list has a little bit of everything

Spring training has started, signaling the countdown to the 2019 MLB season and another season of fantasy baseball. Besides putting together your draft strategy there's also the always important task of coming up with the best name for your fantasy team(s).

This season it was trickier to come up with some new ones and it also was time to retire some classics. For example, anything Joe Mauer-related (such as Lawn Mauers) really should be let go since the former Minnesota Twins catcher/first baseman/DH has decided to call it a career. Although admittedly, you will still find some "old" names below as some classics are too good to not include.


As is the case every season, player movement and the arrival of some new faces to The Show present new opportunities for funny and/or clever fantasy names. While our list is certainly not exhaustive by any means, hopefully you will find this collection of old favorites combined with some new offerings humorous, or perhaps motivate you to come up something better.


Oldies But Goodies

These bad boys should be close to retirement but still can hang with the big boys.
