It's the ownership... I spoke with the GM Cookie Rojas on the phone when they first revealed the Baby Cakes as their new branding... about two years ago... he said it was just to make money and knew the local fans didn't like the name.

Bottom line: it did improve their bottom line... in the end the fans dwindled... in part because the team was a "lame duck'... the fans knew last year was the last year... and also because they didn't like the name.
