The Green Bay Bullfrogs are changing their name to the Green Bay Booyah, named after a famous Wisconsin stew.
The team announced on November 14 that the name change was made to connect to those in the northeaster part of Wisconsin.

“We’re extremely excited to unveil a brand that is not only fun but has a meaningful connection to the community we call home,” John Fanta, the team’s Vice President said. “The name speaks to the rich tradition in Northeast Wisconsin and fans will really enjoy how we plan to integrate the Booyah theme at the ballpark.
But what is Booyah? It is a hearty stew usually made in large quantities to serve as many people as possible at a time. The stew usually consists of mixed vegetables, thick broth, with the meat usually consisting of chicken, with an ox tail added for extra flavor.
