Team Name Selected - Brooks Bombers

With the voting results in, it became abundantly clear that the 3 choices were not supported by the community based on the hundreds of emails and texts that were received.  After speaking with the WMBL advisors, our board has decided to go with the name “Brooks Bombers.”

After 2 days of meetings with the WMBL there were a few key factors in choosing Bombers as our new name.  Bombers was one of the most submitted names during the contest and it also was the most referred name in all of the emails and texts received after the original 3 names were released.  The Bomber name has winning history in the City of Brooks.  The Brooks Badlands Bombers hosted the 2014 Alberta Intermediate Provincial Championship, in which they won!  The same team then travelled to the 2014 Canadian Intermediate National Championships where they won the Bronze Medal.  Lastly, our home field (Elks Field) is a smaller park in the league, increasing the chances of the home team hitting many homeruns(Bombs).  Making the game that more exciting for our fans and slight home field advantage for our team.

We apologize for any confusion, disappointment, or displeasure this decision may cause, as it was never our intent to mislead the great people of our community.  In the end we are in this to support the team and the players.  We are very excited for the upcoming season and look forward to seeing you all at the ballpark!
