175 Funny Fantasy Baseball Team Names for 2018

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

Spring training is in full swing in Florida and Arizona, which means the MLB regular season is just around the corner as well as another chance to try your hand at drafting the best fantasy team possible. But while it may be time to pore over some rankings, chew on some statistical analysis and take part in some mock draft to get you ready there’s one other thing that needs freshening up — your fantasy team’s name.


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.
