The name of Homer Simpson's local team is the Springfield Isotopes. This is an appropriate name since Homer works at the local nuclear power plant (which seems to be the career path of most of Springfield's residents). When Homer Simpson finds out he's about to lose his beloved Springfield Isotopes to Albuquerque… he in usual fashion, bumbles his way to saving the day… and manages to keep the Springfield Isotopes from moving to Albuquerque.
