Baseball Related Dog Name Considerations

Dog owners interested in giving their pooch a baseball related name have a lot of options.  Owners can go with a favorite team name or baseball player.  Mascots and baseball terms and jargon are also a popular choice for the baseball theme.  Luckily, there are so many options that owners do not always have to consider the size, color, or breed or their dog.  However, some names are better suited to specific dogs.  For example, naming your dog Buster, which is a reference to San Francisco catcher Gerald Dempsey "Buster" Posey, appears to suit a Terrier-type dog better or another medium-sized dog with a rough medium-length coat.  The same is true for Dodger and Brewer, which are references to Major League Baseball teams.  Larger dogs may enjoy names like Bomber, which is the nickname of the New York Yankees, or Abner, a reference to the pre Civil War Cooperstown, New York resident, Abner Doubleday, the man who invented American baseball.  Female dog names, like Tater and Twinkie, are better suited for smaller dogs whereas the names Ash, Rosie Red, and Pearl are great descriptors for coat colors.  Owners do not have to make considerations as much in this theme but thinking about the physical characteristics of your dog may help with choosing a baseball related name.
