The Harrisonburg "Turks" were named so, in honor of Rockingham County. Poultry is the big industry of Harrisonburg and turkeys are shall we say… quite plentiful to the area, with turkey farms dotting the landscape. So… the Turks would be the appropriate representative of Harrisonburg. The team would play as a co-op independent with no official Major League affiliation. None of the other teams in the league held an affiliation either.
