Bring Your March Madness to the Mud Hens

CNBC is hosting its second annual Minor League Logo Awards, which can be voted upon by fans up until March 31. (Voting opened on March 10, so I apologize for being a week late with this news.) Tigers fans have a horse in this race, as the Triple-A Toledo Mud Hens are a contestant in this tournament, and ranked as a #7 seed. (No respect!)

(However, I think I have to agree with CNBC's Darren Rovell - the man responsible for this thing - that the Montgomery Biscuits and Modesto Nuts should be considered prohibitive favorites.)

Also of local interest are the #9 seeded Lansing Lugnuts and #15 seeded Great Lake Loons, though they're affiliates of the Toronto Blue Jays and Los Angeles Dodgers, respectively.

I'll confess to a soft spot for the Charleston River Dogs, who have become something of an unofficial favorite minor league team of mine, as I usually catch at least one of their games a year while visiting family in South Carolina. As a #12 seed, however, I don't think I'll have to worry about any conflicts of interest between them and the Mud Hens.

You can vote on the match-ups and see the brackets at Rovell's SportsBiz blog at
