Will This Georgia Baseball Team Change Their Name Because of Complaints?

Not everyone is amused though. An animal rights group called the “Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine” says bacon increases cancer risk, and they are asking the team to change its name to something that’s healthier.
I don’t think they’re not going to be successful though. The president of the Macon Bacon said they were “very surprised” to hear the criticism, which has also been posted on billboards in the city.
He said, “The Macon Bacon do not view ourselves as a glorification of an unhealthy lifestyle… we pride ourselves on being a fun-natured organization focused on bringing families and communities together.”
He added that while they DO serve a ton of bacon in the stadium, they also offer plant-based options… and as for the name, he said, “[We] will not consider a name change. Ever.”
