The new team being established in Fukushima for the BC League in 2015 will be named the Fukushima Hopes.

The team organizers selected Hope as the team name because they wanted to become a beacon of light for kids that were affected by the Tohoku Earthquake.  The group also unveiled the team logo and mascot.  They are planning to field name suggestions for their mascot from elementary and junior high school kids in the prefecture.
