Great Lakes Loons
The Great Lakes Loons is a name of a minor league baseball team based in Midland of Michigan. It is affiliated with the Los Angeles Dodgers. The team plays in the Midwest League and has a home park named Dow Diamond.
The Midwest League was formulated in Battle Creek in the year of 1995 after the franchise, which was formerly known as the Madison Hatters moved. It had first got a name of the Battle Creek Golden Kazoos.
The name was changed for a trademark dispute and general feedback from the fans. It had an affiliation with the Boston Red Sox) and Houston Astros in the past.
Later it had changed its name to the Battle Creek Yankees after becoming an affiliate of the New York Yankees in 2003. It was not a consistent affiliation as the Tampa Bay Devil Rays took over affiliation of the team in September 2004.
It was finally decided in the January of 2006 that the Devil Rays would be sold to the non-profit Michigan Baseball Foundation and relocated to the town of Midland. The team had got the current name of the Great Lakes Loons, at that time.
The team has seen so many shifts due to the lack of interest of the local people. The naming rights for the Loons' stadium were purchased by Dow Chemical, which is headquartered in Midland. The name is a play on the company's logo, a red diamond.
