Nice nod to the old Connecticut franchise.

That's what it is. At first I felt uncomfortable doing it, as if a hypothetical Connecticut Marines franchise still owned the rights to the name, Now I've decided that if the need arises, I'll just hand it over, and in the meantime keep the spirit alive. I thought about using the provision in the rules about being able to locate minors teams in an adjoining state, but since the state used to have a major-league team, it might not be permitted. Plus, the people of Connecticut might not put up with a "downgraded" team.

In baseball stats, when using abbreviated team names to identify player affiliations, one style is to use all caps; another style is to use both uppercase and lowercase letters. I prefer including lowercase, so  that's how I presented my suggestions, but it's up to the league. The abbreviations would work fine as all caps.
