The Wasco Reserves minor league baseball team will be back this winter with a recognizable new name – the Wasco Reserve.
Owner Andrew Dunn said the Pecos League made the decision to make the team's identity more clear.
"We've never changed the name of a team in the history of the league, and this really wasn't much of a change," he said in a telephone interview.
The name is taken from the nearby Kern National Wildlife Refuge, which provides wintering habitat for migratory waterfowl and wading birds. It was once the largest freshwater wetland in the western United States
Dunn said he couldn't be happier in the way the team has been treated, particularly by the Wasco Parks and Recreation Department. He looks forward to seeing them compete in the winter league beginning in February next year.
