Portland Sea Dogs

They've done it every season for the last few years. For one game, the Portland Sea Dogs will ditch the "Sea Dogs" name in favor of something else entirely and completely Maine-based.

This past summer, the Sea Dogs transformed into the Bean Suppahs, offering fans a special one-night-only deal on bean suppers they provided inside of Hadlock Field during the game.

Other than the Bean Suppahs, the Sea Dogs have also transformed into the Maine Whoopies and the Red Snappers. And one of the coolest parts about the Sea Dogs channeling an "alternate identity" as they call it is they don't just change the team name.

They go all in, changing the logo, the scoreboard, the team uniforms -- everything.

And even though they just kicked off their 2023 season last Thursday -- a season where they're 4-0 so far and sitting alone in first place in the Eastern League Northeast Division after a 9-7 win over the New Hampshire Fishercats last night -- they're about to change their identity again.

According to a post on their Instagram page, the Sea Dogs will reveal this season's special new alternate identity tomorrow (Thursday, April 13).

Even though as of right now, we're unsure of exactly what the Sea Dogs' new alternate identity will be -- never one to not have amazing and usually hilarious ideas -- Mainers did a mix of both guessing what the new alternate identity will be as well as offering suggestions for future ones.

The Sea Dogs change their identity once every season, and Mainers had some fun with it.

LOOK: Best Beers From Every State

To find the best beer in each state and Washington D.C., Stacker analyzed January 2020 data from BeerAdvocate, a website that gathers user scores for beer in real-time. BeerAdvocate makes its determinations by compiling consumer ratings for all 50 states and Washington D.C. and applying a weighted rank to each. The weighted rank pulls the beer toward the list's average based on the number of ratings it has and aims to allow lesser-known beers to increase in rank. Only beers with at least 10 rankings to be considered; we took it a step further to only include beers with at least 100 user rankings in our gallery.
