Residing in Jackson, Miss., and a Southern League Double-A affiliate for the Chicago Cubs, Seattle Mariners, and Arizona Diamondbacks was active from 1998-2000 after the Memphis Chicks relocated to town. For the majority of that time, the franchise went by the Diamond Jaxx. The nickname, seemingly creative and unique, was actually the result of a contest held by The Jackson Sun newspaper, which featured a diamond on the entry form. Though that might not be the most original backstory, the team’s logo was pretty cool.
