Welcome to Spartanburgers, home of the Spartanburger. Can I take your order? Spartanburg’s minor league baseball team announced its official name, and, come next spring, you can root root root for The Hub City Spartanburgers.

The name — which was unveiled Saturday, May 11 — was inspired by a Spartanburg staple, The Beacon Drive-in, saying, “you can’t beat a classic.” Spartanburg’s last team — a collegiate summer baseball team in the Coastal Plain League — was also called The Spartanburgers. We’re sensing a delicious theme here.
The new logo features a very happy hamburger wearing a conductor’s hat + featured colors like lettuce green, ketchup red, and mustard yellow.
