'Wichita 29ers' another finalist for name of new baseball team

Posted: Updated:
WICHITA, Kan. (KAKE) -

The City of Wichita has rolled another one of the possible names for the city's new triple-A baseball team. 

Mayor Jeff Longwell tweeted a picture of the "Wichita 29ers" logo and asked, "What do you think about this one?"

Miss Kansas 2019 Annika Wooton said in a video two weeks ago that a different name and logo mock-up will be released every two weeks. The video was released hours after Mayor Longwell tweeted the name of the first finalist: the Wichita River Riders

The team will get its official logo, designed by Todd Radom, in mid-November. 

The team won't start playing until 2020.
