Help Me Rename My Nashville Club

They are currently the Volunteers but because of Tennessee I want to change their name soon to something else. Some cool ideas on this page:
The Best Names for a Nashville Major League Baseball Team | Bleacher Report

Anyone have a link for the baseball ref page that lists all team names Nashville has ever had? I can't find it.

NASHVILLE CATS... from the old song of the '60s by the Lovin' Spoonful.

The cats are the "country guitar pickers", who are the great studio musicians in Music City USA.

I think I saw a great logo for the Nashville Cats with a cat playing a guitar.

Your can hear the song here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VNg7sAsgBSQ

Here are the lyrics:

"Nashville Cats"

[Chorus:]
Nashville cats
Play clean as country water
Nashville cats
Play wild as mountain dew
Nashville cats
Been playin' since they's babies
Nashville cats
Get work before they're two

Well, there's thirteen hundred and fifty-two guitar pickers in Nashville
And they can pick more notes than the number of ants on a Tennessee ant hill
There's thirteen hundred and fifty-two guitar cases in Nashville
And anyone that unpacks his guitar can play twice as better than I will

[Chorus]

I was just 13 you might say I was a musical proverbial knee-high
When I heard a couple new sounding tunes on the tube and they blasted me sky high
Then the record man said everyone is a yellow sun record in Nashville
And up North there ain't nobody buy 'em and I said, but I will

[Chorus]

Well there's sixteen thousand eight hundred twenty-one mothers from Nashville
All their friends play music and they ain't uptight if one of the kids will
Because it's custom made for any mother's son to be a guitar picker in Nashville
And I sure am glad I got a chance to say a word about the music and the mothers from Nashville

[Chorus]

NASHVILLE VOLS, short for VOLUNTEERS... the name they used for about 60 years when they played in the great Southern Association.

They played at Sulphur Dell, a "home-run haven", which had a right field wall only 262 feet from home plate... the outfield inclined just beyond the infield... the outfield wall was 16-foot high topped with a 22-foot screen.

Teams regularly had 15-10 slugfests at Sulphur Dell... a high pop fly to right would be a cheap home run.

I used to listen Mobile Bears radio broadcasts as a kid in the 50s and remember many Sunday doubleheaders when the scores would 10-9 in the seven-innng opener and 13-10 in game two, a regular nine-inning game... no lead was safe at Sulphur Dell, nicknamed "the Dump"... the area had been a garbage dump in the early years of Nashville.

Sulphur Dell was best known for having one of the most significant "terraces" or sloping outfields in baseball history: a steep incline that ran along the entire outfield wall, most dramatically in right and center fields.

You can see what the ballpark looked like here at this link:
File:Sulphur Dell.jpg - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Look closely at the sloping outfield just beyond the infield. You can see the grass gets greener on the incline.

I have a team in my main fictional called the Nashville Mustangs. I think it sounds pretty good and that's enough for me.

Nashville Predators. Let's go back to the days when a city had teams in two different sports but with the same nickname.

That might work. I know i will have the San Antonio Mustangs as one of my 2 expansion team in 1998. Maybe i could just move them instead. i do like the Cats nickname. Does anyone have Vols jerseys? I can only find 4 in No Peppers set and 2 other misc Vols jerseys. I only have one logo.

Chuck i might have that in Phoenix with the Coyotes if i don't use the Rays jerseys i just found a few days ago. I will have the San Jose Sharks at some point also.
Anyone want to make me some jerseys of either Vols 1920-1935 and again 1950 -1997 just need 1 home and 1 road per decade. Or do the Cats. Cats would stay in Nashville after 1998. Vols would move to San Antonio.

There are some Nashville Hornets logos and unis in the mods forum, I saw them earlier today when I was on my laptop. I'm on my phone now, otherwise I would put them here for you...

How about the NASHVILLE HITS... as in baseball and on the hit parade music charts.

The logo could be designed around a circular 45 RPM record crossed with two bats.
