LEXINGTON, Ky. -  Sliders, Rockets, and Hottentots.  Are these the newest menu items at the local burger joint?  Nope.  Believe it or not, they are actual professional baseball team names.  WUKY talked recently with a man who has researched and published a new book on the subject.  Tim Hagerty is a radio broadcaster for the Triple A Tucson Padres and the author of Root For The Home Team – Minor League Baseball’s Most Off The Wall Names And The Stories Behind Them.
