Fantasy Baseball Team Names for 2020 – The Office, Star Wars, and More

Fantasy Baseball Team Names for 2020

Nobody knows when the 2020 MLB season will start up, but there are rumblings that it could be coming sooner than expected.

That means if you haven’t done so already, you may want to get ready to place some wagers at the top MLB betting websites.

You should probably look to conduct your fantasy baseball draft, too. Or if you already have, maybe refresh things a bit by changing your fantasy baseball team name.

I don’t know what it is about fantasy baseball team names, but they’re always fun to come up with each year. Whether just for pure fun, to one-up an opponent, or put the entire league on watch, it allows you to be creative, funny, and stand out.

You can go with some tried and true options, you can operate with a theme, or you can get dark and twisted.

I’m not handing the latter out here, but with the 2020 MLB season closing in, I thought it’d be fun to look at some popular fantasy baseball team names, as well as conjure up some fresh ideas.

Classic Fantasy Baseball Team Names

What is actually popular or “the best” is totally subjective, but the following fantasy baseball team names are pretty well known. I’d deem them borderline classics.

You’ve seen them before, and perhaps you’ve even had them grace your team in the past. Here are some of the best options everyone has heard of and loves.

1. Kershawshank Redemption

Clayton Kershaw is one of the greatest pitchers the majors have ever seen. The Shawshank Redemption is without a doubt one of the best films ever made. It all makes sense now.

2. The Human Cespedes

The Human Centipede is a horror show of a film. Some fans of horror actually like it, but nobody actually enjoys it. It’s a thing, though, just as Mets masher Yoenis Cespedes is a thing. So, there’s that.

3. Ethier Said Than Dunn

This is a timeless fantasy baseball team name classic, referring to baseball greats Andre Ethier and Adam Dunn. Ethier wasn’t a masher, but he racked up a bunch of hits. Dunn was very inefficient, but few could launch balls like he could (462 career homers).

4. The Duda Abides

Lucas Duda was never really a household name, but he benefits from being tied to one of the funniest movies known to man. Jeff Bridges was perfect as “The Dude” in the iconic Big Lebowski, and this fantasy baseball team name pays homage to that flick.

Duda won’t be confused with the MLB greats, but he twice clocked 30 home runs over the fence in a single season. Not too shabby.

5. Bauer Outage

This one isn’t all that old, but the fact that it’s an instant classic is a testament to how clever it is. It’s such a good fantasy baseball team name, in fact, that it’s also the nickname of Trevor Bauer (or vice versa).

Bauer is still regarded as one of the most talented pitchers in baseball, and this serves as an undying tribute to his greatness on the mound.

Best Fantasy Team Names (6-25)

  • 6. Hold Me Closer Ohtani Dancer
  • 7. Carry on My Heyward Son
  • 8. The Seven Year Ichiro
  • 9. Black Sabathia
  • 10. He’s Just Not That Shin-soo Choo
  • 11. Soler Powered
  • 12. Hitting for the Keuchel
  • 13. Syndergaardians of the Galaxy
  • 14. Better Call Paul Goldschmidt
  • 15. Snell Hath No Fury
  • 16. The Balking Dead
  • 17. DeJong and DeRestless
  • 18. No Soup 4 U
  • 19. Grand Theft Votto
  • 20. No Stroman, No Cry
  • 21. Honey Nut Ichiros
  • 22. Beam Me Up Piscotty
  • 23. You Make Me Wanna Trout
  • 24. Acuna Matata
  • 25. Bryce Krispies

You could argue the rest of these into the top 5. There are hundreds (nay, thousands) more that could earn their way into a top 25 or top 50, too. But you came here looking for the best of the best.

Again, that’s subjective as things can possibly get, but at the very worst, this is a nice place to start when trying to pick a team name for your fantasy baseball squad.

New Fantasy Baseball Team Names

Want something brand new that sticks out but that nobody has ever heard of? You can keep digging for the best fantasy baseball team names, you can use team name generators, or you can rack your brain to come up with your own.

There’s also me (points with two thumbs and says “this guy”), as I’ve got a few ideas up my sleeve. They’re brand new (as far as I can tell), as I promise I didn’t look them up and steal them from any other list.

Of course, great minds think alike.

Some of my fresh fantasy baseball team names could easily have been dreamt up and even printed before. I’ll try my best to keep it as unique as possible, but I’ll get a little help from some fun pop culture themes.

They may not be the greatest fantasy baseball team names ever, but they are brand new (I think), and they’re MLB, fantasy, and/or player centric.

I’ve got a few more up my sleeve for anyone looking to combine their love for MLB/fantasy baseball with some of their favorite TV shows.

The Office Fantasy Team Names

I don’t know about you, but basically every single time I access Netflix, all roads lead me back to watching more of The Office.

It’s become a fabric of our leaves, given way to countless memes, and it very well may be the most quotable show of all time. With that said, here are my favorite The Office fantasy baseball team names for 2020.

  • 1. Working Me With Pujols

This is an homage to Kevin Malone’s hilarity, when he admits to his colleagues that someone said that a person was inside him “working him with controls.”

Albert Pujols is a living legend and one of the best hitters baseball has ever seen. It all adds up.

  • 2. That’s What Shea Said

This pays respect to one of the classic lines from The Office. Is it probably sexist? For sure, but The Office got away with everything, so why stop now?

This simultaneously refers to the old stadium for the Mets, which they played ball in for 45 years.

  • 3. Where Are the Turnbulls?

Spencer Turnbull is sadly pitching for the Detroit Tigers, but he’s actually been pretty good for them. He’s the closest thing we can get to Michael Scott’s “Where are the turtles?” scream.

  • 4. Why Are You the Wei-Yin You Are?

One of Michael’s best The Office quotes is easily when he slammed Tobe, his arch nemesis. The timeless “Why are you the way that you are” quote will never die, even if Seattle pitcher Wei-Yin Chen may not live up to its glory.

  • 5. The d’Arnaud Dog

Andy Bernard was always a pretty volatile character. You never knew what you’d get. This fantasy baseball team name pays homage to his famous nickname, while also giving a nod to Braves catcher Travis d’Arnaud.

Other Themed Fantasy Team Names

The Office rules my TV-watching life, so forgive me if that’s the first (and only) place my brain goes. There are a lot of other relevant pop culture themes to work with, however, from TV shows to movies and much more.

I’ll touch on a few of my personal favorites with a list of viable fantasy baseball team names to wrap things up.

  • Yadda Yadda Molina
  • Yoda Molina
  • Game of Throws
  • Babe Ruth Langmore
  • The Last Kingerydom
  • The Last France
  • Swing Lowe Sweet Chariot
  • Leave It to Bieber
  • Stranger Thames
  • As the World Turner
  • Rowdy Tellez Piper
  • Corbin Report
  • Treat Yo Soto
  • Breaking Vlad
  • Yo, Evan White!
  • Yeah, Bichette!
  • Dreaming of Dexter Fowler
  • Marcell Ozarka
  • I Am Iron McCann
  • Walker, Texas Buehler
  • Stanton by Me
  • Aroldis Chapstickman
  • Doesn’t Look Like Any King Felix to Me
  • Mr. Glasnow
  • Saving Zimmerman

These are all over the place, from a Yadi Molina shoutout dealing with Seinfeld and Star Wars to nods to Game of Thrones and other television shows.

I’m even referencing lesser-known MLB hitters like Ty France and Scott Kingery over here.

Some of these are hits, and of course, a few will be duds. Luckily, I can’t see the eye rolls.

Even so, this gives you another list of pop culture fantasy baseball team names to work in with your own and whatever ones you’ve collected elsewhere online.


There, now you have some new, relevant, witty, and funny fantasy baseball team names for 2020. I hope, at least.

A lot of this is subjective, but you have to dig a little to get that perfect team name. Ideally, I aided you in that process.
