Steve Starks blew things wide open on Wednesday morning.

Amid growing chatter on Twitter that an announcement was forthcoming regarding interest from the Larry H. Miller Group of Companies in bringing a Major League Baseball team to Utah, Starks — LHM’s CEO — posted an old photo on the social media website Wednesday of a boy (presumed to be him) in a baseball uniform.

From there, Twitter went wild over the next few hours with reactions, especially as the news more formally broke a few hours later.

The reactions were wide-ranging, from positive to negative, funny to serious, with a whole bunch of ideas for team nicknames becoming a main topic of the discourse.

Here is some of that reaction.
