Pro Baseball Team Goes With London Rippers (For Now)

London, Ontario’s new baseball franchise in the Frontier League will be called the London Rippers. Some are not pleased with the name given its connection to Jack the Ripper, the unidentified serial killer.

The baseball team's mascot is Diamond Jack. He appears in the logo as a man in a top hat, dark outfit with only his eyes visible carrying a baseball bat. That doesn't help.
