The other day Greg passed on a release from the Reading Phillies in which they discussed plans to change the team's name. After a few days of mixed reactions from the fanbase, it appears that the team's name is coming out. Last night on the Reading Eagle's website, Mike Drago identified the "Reading Fightins" as the likely team name.
The name got revealed in the Save the Reading Phillies Facebook group. Rich Horst, a member of the group did some detective work with some of the names the group passed around and realized that the domain name readingfightins.com was registered by the Reading Phillies. After getting credit from the Reading Eagle, Horst added:
I'd like to add that domain name registration is publicly available information. They can be listed privately if you pay more money to the registrar. There is no 100% guarantee this is the name but it is owned by the Reading Phillies. Happy to add to the drama.
