Colorado Springs baseball team named Rocky Mountain Vibes

November 20, 2018

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) — The minor league baseball team that moved from Helena, Montana to Colorado Springs has a new name — the Rocky Mountain Vibes.

Team officials announced the mascot would be a s’more with his hair on fire named Toasty Vibes.

Colorado Springs lost its Triple-A Sky Sox baseball team to San Antonio, Texas, and gained the Rookie level team from the Pioneer League, which led to the re-naming.

General manager Chris Phillips announced the new name Monday, joining other minor league teams with quirky names such as Akron RubberDucks, the Albuquerque Isotopes, the Modesto Nuts and the Montgomery Biscuits.

The Vibes are considering having fire pits around the stadium for fans to toast marshmallows.
