METAIRIE, La. -- The new nickname of the New Orleans-based minor league baseball team was revealed Tuesday evening to be the 'Baby Cakes.'
The new name was announced at the minor league facility at the sports complex on Airline Drive.
Social media weighed in quickly with WWL's Facebook and Twitter accounts almost unanimously panning the decision.
Of the first 90 'reactions' on Facebook, there wasn't a single 'like' and there were several angry faces, laughters and wows.
Here are some of the reactions on social media that were safe to share:
