Root, root, root for the Tommyknockers.
The name of Butte’s expansion Expedition League baseball team was unveiled Wednesday night, and let’s all put our hands together for the Mining City Tommyknockers.
The name was the result of a fan vote. It beat out the Blasters, Powder Monkeys, Prospectors and Ridge.
A Tommyknocker is a mythical being that keeps miners safe, often knocking to indicate danger or to tell the miners where to dig.
The Tommyknockers will begin play in May at 3 Legends Stadium.
