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.
“There were some great submissions from the fans,” said Thunderheads Executive VP and General Manager Stephanie Tucker.
In choosing the name Amarillo Thunderheads, Tucker says 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.” She added 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. “It’s important to us that we honor our amazing baseball history while we prepare to write our own chapter,” said Tucker.
