AMARILLO OPTS FOR NAME CHANGE

Amarillo, TX – After public input and careful research, Amarillo Pro Baseball management has opted to change the name of the team to the Amarillo Thunderheads.

 

In choosing the name Amarillo Thunderheads, fans have a name and a team that is uniquely theirs. “Baseball is a Spring and Summer sport. Our most impactful weather occurs in those seasons, including large, powerful thunderheads.” The new team colors – red, blue and gold – were chosen to honor the teams that have graced Potter County Memorial Stadium in years past including the Amarillo Gold Sox, Amarillo Dillas and Amarillo Sox.
