Dulles Blue Heron – The ballpark and the overall Kincora project sits adjacent to a very important blue heron rookery. This popular name reflects the group’s dedication to preserving and enhancing the rookery and being in complete partnership with the amazing environment that surrounds the ballpark.
Virginia Silver Stars – The Silver Star is one of the nation’s highest military honors and this name reflects VIP Baseball’s commitment and support of our nation’s greatest defenders and heroes: our military. The Silver Star is awarded to a person who, while serving in any capacity with the U.S. Army, is cited for gallantry in action.
Loudoun Hounds – Loudoun County has an extensive and proud equine history and combined with dozens of submission of variations of hound-related names (i.e. Foxhounds, Redhounds, Hound Dogs) this was a perfect reflection of the County’s heritage. Additionally, the American Foxhound is the state dog of Virginia.
These are the three finalist in the Name the Team contest that was held to name the new professional baseball that will be coming to Loudoun, VA. Bob Farren VIP’s Managing Partner says “These names reflect some of the most popular submissions and reflect the team’s unique place in the area’s history and environment.”
