Green Bay Bullfrogs become Booyah


ASHWAUBENON – The Northwoods League baseball team known for more than a decade as the Bullfrogs will now be called a form of chicken stew.

Big Top Baseball, the owner of the Green Bay-area team moving next year into Capital Credit Union Park now under construction in Ashwaubenon, formally unveiled the new team name and related logos for the Green Bay Booyah at a ceremony held Wednesday, Nov. 14, at the Green Bay Distillery.

“We’re extremely excited to unveil a brand that is not only fun but has a meaningful connection to the community we call home,” said John Fanta, the team’s vice president. “The name speaks to the rich tradition in northeast Wisconsin and fans will really enjoy how we plan to integrate the Booyah theme at the ballpark. I can’t wait to shout the phrase after our first home run at Capital Credit Union Park.”

Prior to moving into the new stadium, Big Top Baseball decided to rename the team as part of a contest that had been going on this summer. Besides Booyah, the other six finalists included Cheese Curds, Old Fashioneds, Supper Clubbers, Tailgaters, Under Dogs and Wurst.

The team announced that Mike Rabas, a Door County resident, was the Grand Prize winner of the Name the Team Contest and won two lifetime infield box season tickets, a personalized team jersey, an authentic game hat and will be invited to throw out the first pitch for the 2019 home opener in June.

With chicken being the most common ingredient in Booyah, the team logos feature a rooster.

Big Top Baseball also introduced the team colors that include royal blue, sky blue, gold, orange and gray.

The Booyah will have a variety of logos to be featured on merchandise and branding around the new stadium. The team utilized Brandiose out of San Diego to put together the logos, which include a uniform patch noting Ashwaubenon, Wisconsin.

A 2,000-gallon kettle that will be placed at Capital Credit Union Park depicts the logos of the Green Bay Booyah.

Team officials also debuted what they call the World’s Largest Booyah Kettle.

The kettle features hand-painted versions of the team logos, which provided the first glimpse of the branding at the unveiling event.

The 2,000-gallon kettle will be installed at Capital Credit Union Park in time for the 2019 season.

The team has a new website up and running at booyahbaseball.com along with new social media accounts (Facebook: Green Bay Booyah, Twitter: @greenbaybooyah).

Team merchandise is now available at the new Team Store and front office location at 2325 Holmgren Way, Suite 110, in Ashwaubenon, near Gordman’s, and is also available online.

The Booyah Team Office and Shop hours are Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. through the end of the year. There will also be a host of Sunday dates that the store will be open leading up to the holidays.

This Saturday, Nov. 17, the team will be serving free Booyah from The Booyah Shed to all fans beginning at 11 a.m. outside of the Holmgren Way location until it’s gone. Anyone that stops into the new team store will receive a voucher that can be redeemed outside at The Booyah Shed trailer. No purchase is required.

Fans can also reserve the new five-game memberships to watch Booyah baseball, either online or by stopping into the new office location.

Those that place a deposit on tickets by Dec. 21 will receive a free invitation to the inaugural Hot Stove event in January where they will receive the first opportunity to pick their seats at Capital Credit Union Park, witness the unveiling of new team uniforms and mascot, along with the first player signees for the 2019 team.
