25 Minor League Baseball Teams That Sound Fake But Are Absolutely Real

Minor league baseball teams are fun to watch. The tickets are usually cheap and seeing some future MLB players play is pretty cool, but the funny names are enough to make me want to go to a game. Even just to confirm that they are real.
