A few little birds told us this summer that the Orleans Cardinals would change their name over the winter. News today from Orleans is that the Cardinals are becoming the Firebirds. The songbirds are upgrading to raptors.
Congratulations to the Orleans Firebirds organization. I can't wait to purchase new Chatham Anglers and Orleans Firebirds baseball caps!
The change was caused by MLB's challenge of the Cape League's use of several MLB team names, like the Mariners, Cardinals, A's, Red Sox and Braves.
