More on the Columbus Chatt-A-Hoots
Fans are the heart of every sports team. So, it makes sense that the managers of the Columbus Chatt-A-Hoots would want the opinions of those cheering in the stands. In fact, they even asked people in the area to pick out the perfect name for the Columbus, GA baseball team. In the end, they chose the “Columbus Chatt-A-Hoots,” which is a clever riff on another local favorite: the Chattahoochee River.
