Meet the Ohse Meats from Topeka, Kansas. The team was sponsored by a local meat supplier, as its name suggests, and was a regular fixture at the national women’s softball tournament during the 1960s. The Meats never won a national title–they were more of a regional powerhouse–but they featured several strong players, including Billie Moore (pictured back row, far right, next to her dad, and the team’s coach, Bill Moore), who went on to become a celebrated women’s basketball coach at the college and Olympic level.  And I think it’s fair to say they had one of the best team names.
