This is shaping up as an epic season for minor league baseball.

Already there are the newly-renamed El Paso Chihuahuas and the Akron RubberDucks. The Lehigh Valley IronPigs have their bacon-themed togs and the Toledo Mudhens their “Ghostbusters” unis. Now, the Fresno Grizzlies have jumped into the fun with Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles uniforms.

At the moment, the team says only the caps will be available online. Jerseys will be auctioned off for charity.

Elsewhere, the Chihuas have an inspired “Fear the Ears” campaign.

The RubberDucks went with Akron’s well-known history.

And Lehigh Valley, in its “Smell the Change” campaign, answers the question, “Who doesn’t like bacon?”
