You can get a complete geographical breakdown, state-by-state, of Negro League teams here. Scroll down to the state in which your franchise is currently located.

You will likely find a number of team nicknames to choose from, as Negro League teams seldom lasted for more than a few years before a new iteration popped up.
Oh this is bad A$$...

I’m totally on board, sounds like a great idea.

Maybe we can even have a commish rename if possible in case people don’t log on/check their team

Chris says off season should allow changes to name.

I like the idea. Additionally, teams could rename a couple of their star players to the names of the Negro League star players of their respective teams. That would be difficult, though, as player names for a lot of teams is very spotty and lost to history.
