OMAHA, Neb. (KMTV) — On Monday the Omaha Storm Chasers, in what was one of the best April Fool's jokes of the day, revealed a new team name and logo based on Omaha roadways.

After the post went locally-viral, they asked people to vote on whether or not they should make real "Omaha Potholes gear."

The Storm Chasers now say they will be making Omaha Potholes hats and shirts...and 20% of proceeds will help restore flood-damaged little league fields.
