Philadelphia Phillies

Known originally as the Philadelphia Quakers in their early years, the team eventually changed names to be the Philadelphians which was commonly shortened to the Phillies.

Ownership decided to freshen things up in the early 1940s and attempted to change the team moniker to Blue Jays. The team wore a Blue Jay patch on their uniforms for a few seasons, but fans kept calling them the Phillies and Blue Jay was eventually scrapped.
