Talk about name confusion. Along with Sharks and Stingrays, “Go Beach,” or “no mascot at all” was a finalist for the new mascot. The school’s athletic programs will continue to use the “Beach Athletics” moniker, while the baseball team will retain its longstanding informal nickname of the “Dirtbags.”

Quick, somebody change our web page to state that we are named after the highway and we should be okay.

Well, having a unique D-I mascot at Long Beach State didn’t last long with the merger of the D-I LIU Brooklyn (Blackbirds) and D-II LIU Post (Pioneers) athletic programs!
