Northwoods Team Gets a Name

By  | 

Eau Claire Express was the team name selected from more than 1,200 entries for the Northwoods League baseball team.

Dave Turner of Eau Claire was chosen from seven contestants that wrote in Express as their first choice.

He'll receive season tickets for next summer, as well as four Milwaukee Brewers tickets, and team apparel.

Eagles was the most common name submitted. Explorers, Lumberjacks, Rivermen and Skeeters were also popular, but not selected due to the similarity to other team names in the league.
