Team Profile

Did you know that the New York Yankees were originally called the New York Highlanders? If you're a baseball fan, odds are pretty good that you did, in fact, know that. If you're a sports fan, you know that teams change names frequently: The Washington Bullets became the Wizards, the New York Titans became the Jets, the Houston Colt .45's became the Astros, The Anaheim Mighty Ducks became the Ducks (kudos to the marketing guru who collected a fat check for that one)... The point is that names change, but glorious histories remain, as is the case for the 2015 HRL squad heading to the NWLA Tournament.

"Touched By An Uncle" was a name that had no specific origins. It was just a name that we filled out on an application. It had served its purpose for two years, but in 2015, it's a whole new ballgame. HRL will arrive at the NWLA Tournament with a new manager, new players, and a new badass attitude. No more will HRL be the "fun old guys" in Columbus. It's time to be taken seriously. It's time for a name that reflects that.

Minnesota is a state with a lot of pride. We take pride in the fact that we survive sub-zero winters year after year. We take pride in the fact that we perfected a hamburger stuffed with cheese. We take pride in the fact that two of our biggest celebrity exports are a giant wrestling governor, and a tiny purple musician. What makes us the most proud, however, is the fact that we are the only state west of New York to have three leagues in the NWLA Tournament.

Our fellow Minnesota Leagues -- Minnesota Wiffleball Association, and Shed Field Wiffleball League -- have both chosen team names that reflect symbols of Minnesota -- the Gophers, and the Loons. It is with that same level of state pride that HRL is proud to announce their team name for the 2015 NWLA Tournament...

Now, you may ask yourself, "Sakes alive, that is a fantastic name, but what does 'Lady Slippers' have to do with Minnesota?". That is a terrible question, but we'll address it anyway... Cypripedium Reginae (more commonly known as the Pink and White Lady's Slipper) is the state flower of Minnesota, and boy oh boy, is she a beaut. From the correct viewing angle, it may look like anything from a wad of chewed up bubble gum to a freshly shorn nutsack. It's majestic, and sure to instill fear in all who cross her. A perfect team name.

But this tournament is not about nicknames, it's about saying horrible things about your opponents, complaining about everybody else's walk-up music, and to a lesser degree, becoming national champions. With that in mind, HRL has assembled a squad of rookies and veterans they believe can excel at all of those aspects and more. Let's meet them.
