League Name

It is of course not necessary to keep the merged Nettles Ruth League name. More recently, some leagues have chosen to adopt a new league to forge a new identity.

I have attached a poll with three alternatives. They have the benefit of having initials that are unique among paid teams which makes my life easier. :) (You can vote for two options.)

History note: The names Roberto Clemente, Lou Gehrig and Stan Musial were reserved early in the history of the game for new leagues that were never set up. Based on their IDs and age, I am guessing they were meant for Dynasty leagues, but then we invented the Private (now Term) leagues and we never finished the original Dynasty League set. (I swear I recall a Lou Gehrig League at some point in the site's history but can't find any evidence there ever was one.)

(I'm fine with keeping Ruth Nettles, as it preserves some heritage of two long-standing, popular leagues.)

I don't see any commanding leads here so I am going to leave the league name as it is, but if a groundswell builds for a new name, shoot me a ticket. Thank you!

I think it would be cool to have the Lou Gehrig League as our name.
