Team History[edit]

The Jacksonville Jumbo Shrimp began play in the Southern League in 2017, replacing the Jacksonville Suns. The name was driven by an attempt to re-brand the team, as marketing executives figured that the name "Suns" was too staid at a time when minor league teams were increasingly choosing "far-out" names such as Baby Cakes, Rumble Ponies, or Fire Frogs to create a buzz. Early returns were positive as the team almost doubled its per-game attendance - its main source of revenue - over the first month of 2017.
