Furs Gone Batty...

This is an update- I needed to clarify some things....

OK, I think I've mentioned this before, but to those new to +watching me, the only sport I care about at all is baseball-- I'm a San Francisco Giants fan. (GO GIANTS!)

That said, I've had this baseball-related story bouncing in my head for a year or so, now, but... I would like to enlist the help of my +watchers! You don't even have to be baseball fans to help, either!

So what's the idea? A furry baseball league, namely a play-by-play of two popular teams, with mentions of what's up with other teams as the game's playing, much like a radio broadcast.

The setting is an alternate, furry version of North America, so the cities and teams would reflect this.

(Furries, not toons. I want to keep this as relatively original as possible.)

So where do I need your help?

Teams, and the cities they come from. Don't worry about players- I can deal with that. :)

To understand, I'll explain how major league baseball is set up, for those not too knowledgable about it.

In the US (with one team in Canada- there used to be two), there are 30 teams, divided into the American League and National League, with 15 teams each, further divided into West, Central and East divisions, 5 teams each.

I need help with team names and their leagues, or rather the furry equivalent thereof, that correspond to MLB.

If you suggest a name and I consider it, I could write you in as a fan cameo or a player.

I need suggestions by June 1. Please have fun with this, as I want it to be something fun. :)

I probably ought to suggest the Toronto Blue Jays... but honestly, our team's for the birds.

~ The Duckburg (or Eureka) Nuggets?
               (The real life Nuggets are based out of Denver, which is a good ways inland from Duckburg's location.  But I figure a city like Duckburg would fit the name better if it existed.  I don't know what Carl Barks used, if anything, but it was probably something like "Duckburg Sluggers".)

~ The Mouseton Cheddarheads?
               (Admittedly, something more appropriate for the fans.)

~ The Gotham City Bats?
               (With up-and-coming player Buck Bokai.)

Okay, so they're probably not that terribly original, but I hardly count as a sports fan.

Mythological creatures could also be considered:

~ The Phoenix Firebirds

~ The San Diego Humans
               (Why not?  Their fans could be called "Naked Apes" or (derogatorily) "Shaved Monkeys".)

Extinct creatures need not be exempt, either, although I think a team called the "Leptis" (they wield bats on both ends!) would be more fitting for a French team, assuming the French bother with baseball.
