Tortugas de Daytona

Daytona Turtles
Minor League team: 
Daytona, Florida
While Daytona's turtle logo is directly tied to its "Tortugas" name, the moniker also pays homage to Spanish explorer Juan Ponce de León and his connection to Florida. Making landfall approximately 12 miles from Daytona, in the now aptly-named Ponce de León Inlet, Spain's inaugural exploration through Florida eventually yielded a trip to the Dry Tortugas Islands west of the Florida Keys.
