WICHITA, Kan. (KAKE) -

The City of Wichita has rolled out a third possible name for the city's new triple-A baseball team. 

The @WichitaBaseball Twitter account on Wednesday changed its name to "Wichita Linemen." 

Miss Kansas 2019 Annika Wooton said in a video last month 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 second finalist, Wichita 29ers, was released two weeks ago.

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

The team won't start playing until April 2020.
