Kingsport, TN – Kingsport Baseball welcomes their new team identity as the Kingsport Axmen. The new identity comes as the Appalachian League partners with Major League Baseball (MLB) and USA Baseball.
Not only does one of the new logos mimic their well-known and fan-favorite ‘K’ but also has history to its meaning. Boyd Sports President Chris Allen talked about the meaning, saying, “Kingsport’s new name is absolutely fitting considering Daniel Boone and his “Axmen” began The Wilderness Trail in Kingsport, TN. The Axmen is a name that will resonate with all.”
Boyd Sports, LLC. announced in January they will be taking over operation of the Kingsport Axmen. Jeremy Boler, vice president of Boyd Sports, explained, “Working with the Kingsport community has been great so far. We are looking forward to our first season with the community and as the Axmen.”
The Kingsport Axmen debut this season on June 3, 2021, against the Bluefield Baseball Club.
