While there still seems to be some disappointment over the loss its old name, the Missoula PaddleHeads are getting some very favorable attention.

Last week, the PaddleHeads embarked on their first competition since the November rebrand and took home the title "Best New Look" in Minor League Baseball, as voted by a national fan base.

The contest, hosted by Minor League Baseball, asked fans to vote for their favorite new logos across the country. The PaddleHeads were in competition with the Danville Braves, Fort Meyers Mighty Mussels, Fredericksbburg Nationals, Kannapolis Cannon Ballers, Norwich Sea Unicorns, Wichita Wind Surge, Winston-Salem Dash and Worcestor WooSox.

Congrats to Vice President Matt Ellis and his team - the smallest market of those in the running. The "Best New Look" Paddleheads open the 2020 home season June 19 against the Idaho Falls Chukars.
