All teams are just called by their name. If you look at Baseball standings or pratically anything teams are called by their actual name not the place they come from. The New York Mets are called the Mets The Houston Astros are called the Astros All teams are called by their actual name not the place ---- One story has it that they changed their primary uniform color from brown to cardinal red starting in the 1900 season.
