Original Story Tuesday, October 15th, 2019 7:30am:

(Florence, Ky.) – The Florence Freedom professional baseball team is no more…well the team is, but not the name!

The Boone County Recorder reports that former general manager Clint Brown wanted to change the Freedom name back in 2004-05. However, there were more pressing issues to work out before the start of the season. Brown died in January 2018. 

His vision for the team to re-brand will be seen under new ownership. A four-man group named Freedom Baseball Club, LLC acquired the team in July. They hope that re-branding the franchise will help reinvigorate the fan base. 

The organization's name change is effective immediately. Except they don't have a name yet. 

Fans now have the chance to give their vote on the team name they get to cheer for. The Freedom Baseball Club, LLC is holding a Name-The-Team contest.

If your name gets chosen, the organization will gift you two Lifetime Season Tickets.
