That's right, the Springfield Armor. The name was selected by a poll, and beat out Colonials, Founders, Spirit, and "write-in." Why Armor? According to the press release,
The name "Armor" pays tribute to the historic Springfield Armory, which has served as a symbol of strength and stability for Western Massachusetts and the United States as a whole since George Washington authorized its creation in 1777.
It's true that armor is a symbol of strength, but based on that logo it also may be a symbol of limited mobility. It also looks like the team's primary colors will be red, blue and black, though there may be some silver in there as well.
What do you think about the Springfield Armor and this new logo?
