Visalia Rawhide
Fort Myers Miracle
Greenville Drive
West Virginia Power

I'm sure there are others, if you want more.
If you are including minor league baseball, there are definitely quite a few. Off the top of my head (though I haven't verified uniqueness):
Lansing Lugnuts
Las Vegas 51s
Delmarva Shorebirds
Lehigh Valley Iron Pigs
Albequerque Isotopes
Carolina Mudcats
Greensboro Grasshoppers
Fayetteville (NC) Woodpeckers

Duh. Sorry. Missed the "singular" part of your original post.

FWIW, Wild and Storm have multiple teams in this thread already (may be others).

Red Sox and White Sox?

Whatever a sox is it doesn’t seem to be plural.

My all-time favorite -- which was coined by former NBC sportscaster Tim Ryan -- was the old Southern Hockey League's "Macon Whoopee" (1973-74)
